Internship Opportunities

2012 Interns

The Banneker-Douglass Museum (BDM) offers internship opportunities to those who want to gain experience at the state of Maryland’s museum for African American history and culture. 

Internship opportunities are available to undergraduate and graduate students in any area of concentration; however our program focuses on those who specialize in African American studies/history, American studies/history, English, art, museum studies, historic preservation, education, marketing, and communications.

Internships are usually unpaid, but will fulfill credit requirements for most universities and colleges. BDM staff will work with the student and his/her professor to develop an internship that will meet academic requirements.

Students from the University of Maryland, MICA, University of Delaware, St. John’s College, and other institutions have successfully completed challenging and beneficial internships at the museum.
