Internships are an integral part of gaining experience in your field of interest. Most jobs look to see where applicants have interned or volunteered as a qualifier for filling positions. Internships give real life experience in a structured setting. These types of employment are perfect to hone your skills in the field and have a lifelong mentor in your corner cheering you on.


  • Must be a current undergraduate student
  • Must maintain a 2.5 GPA

The NC Maritime Museum at Southport is thrilled to get these started! The internship has been designed into an 8-week program that exposed the intern to all aspects of the museum. Interns are expected to be at the museum a minimum of 5 hours a week and at the end of the program they must present their project.

The Project:

This can take one of two forms. Either the intern creates an educational program or creates a panel and interactive for the exhibit hall. Both take much research and time commitment. This project will be presented to a panel of community and museum members. Each panelist will have a grading sheet to complete as well as given the opportunity for questions, comments and feedback.
