Design Internship

The Hammer Museum offers year-long internships to UCLA students that foster sustained connections between Hammer staff and their interns. The goal of the internship program is to develop students’ capacity for professional-level museum service. In the 2018/19 academic year the Hammer Museum will offer a year-long 9-credit Design Internship (3 credits per quarter) to a selected UCLA undergraduate student. The internship will begin October 2018, and proceed until the end of the spring 2019 quarter.                               

The intern's primary responsibilities will be to assist with design production and coordination; documentation; and archiving of completed projects, as well as designing digital and printed collateral. The intern will work with the design team to coordinate existing and upcoming projects, documentation of completed projects, and use Adobe Creative Suite to design on-site printed materials as well as digital promotional graphics. The intern will learn how to work within an in-house design team, track projects from start to finish, and assist the design team with additional tasks as needed. 

To receive credit, interns are required to complete a minimum of 75 hours per quarter. The internship is competitive, and preference is given to juniors or seniors who have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.

TO APPLY: Students interested in a 2018/19 internship should submit a one-page letter stating professional interests, qualifications, as well as a resume, and a copy of their transcripts (or Degree Progress Report). Application materials should be emailed to Tara Morris, [email protected].
