The Worcester Center for Crafts offers interested students the opportunity to gain valuable experience by serving as interns in different departments and on different assignments in arts administration and business practice.
Our intern supervisors will work closely with you to provide a positive and educational experience. You should expect that each position will include different projects and also require assistance with daily organizational and preparatory tasks. Successful interns are self-motivated and can work in structured and unstructured environments.Internships generally require a semester-long commitment during the academic year. Interns should expect to work a minimum of 10 hours per week. Please note that all intern positions are unpaid.
Position descriptions generally are created to match the interns interests/skills AND the Craft Center’s specific needs. Available intern positions are subject to departmental need and, thus, may not be available every semester.
The following are examples of internships--we are limited to only 2-4 interns in any given semester/session:
