The SAM internship program offers part-time, unpaid internships for one or more academic quarters each year. Students may be eligible to earn academic credit, however credit programs are managed through individual academic institutions.
A wide range of opportunities and experiences are provided through the SAM internship program. Internship experiences may include researching artists, exhibitions, and programs; conducting market research or writing press releases; developing workshops, tours, lectures, dialogues, symposia, curricula, performances and other interpretive public programs that cater to a variety of audiences.
