The internship programme gives a limited number of qualified students practical experience working in a professional setting. This enables them to apply academic skills learned in the classroom to concrete problems in the workplace and helps prepare them for museum or other arts-related careers. Selected interns will work with senior staff of the University Museum and Art Gallery or other art institutions in Hong Kong on a project or projects relating to professional museological or curatorial practice. Admission is selective, based on application and an interview. Students wishing to apply for the internship are strongly encouraged to first take FINE2056 (Museum studies workshop).
Assessment: 100% coursework.
Prerequisite: At least one Fine Arts course at the 3000 level and three other Fine Arts courses at the 2000 or 3000 level.
