Student Guide Program

The CMA Undergraduate Student Guide Program is an experiential training internship that enables college students to engage museum audiences by designing tours, guiding close-looking, presenting in educational videos and virtual programs, and researching and writing art history. The Guides work to demonstrate how works of art are relevant to our current moment and explore how art reveals what we think, how we see, and how we live. Positions can be renewed annually.

This position requires a 2-year commitment and a time commitment of approximately 4 hours per week during the academic year.

Training during the 2021 Spring semester is entirely virtual, and training during the 2021-22 academic year will be hybrid until further notice.
