Gallery Guides
Gallery Guides are Williams College students who lead tours and welcome visitors to the museum. Guides meet weekly on Mondays from 4-5:30 to study the collection, learn from curators and museum educators, and develop group facilitation and gallery teaching skills. Guides design individualized tours based on their own academic interests.

Gallery Guide positions are paid. We accept applications at the beginning of each academic year. Email Rachel Heisler to learn more.

Summer Internships
WCMA’s Summer Internship program for students combines hands-on learning with close mentorship. Students spend eight weeks working with curators, educators, registrars, and other staff on a variety of projects, from research and exhibition development to social media and art cataloguing. Weekly programs offer a behind-the-scenes look at WCMA and bring interns and staff together for casual conversations about museum careers.

Our Summer Internships are full-time, paid positions for Williams College students. Contact Rachel Heisler for more information.

Culminating projects include teaching in the Rose Object Classroom, presenting at a curatorial meeting, or curating an exhibition.
