Curators at the Hunter Museum regularly co-teach in our galleries with regional universities and colleges, and we encourage students to become involved in our public education programs, symposia, or volunteer positions. See our listings below, and to discuss a variety of visit and collection study options, contact Adera Causey at



Student Membership is a great value ($15) and allows students unlimited visits to the Hunter for a year. Please select Student on our Support page to access this option.


If you are planning to visit the Hunter, download our special guide, Museum Visiting for College Students, which was created in partnership with Giselle Hasel, Assistant Professor of Art at Southern Adventist University. This guide offers tools for using the museum and assists you as you gain skills in looking and writing about art.


Each April, the museum hosts a symposium for undergraduate students on an exhibition-related theme. This year’s symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art and will feature the theme of Border Crossings. Respondent is Dr. Elissa Weichbrodt, Assistant Professor of Art at Covenant College. To apply, read our Call for Papers here. This program is open and free to the public.


The museum occasionally works with college students to become docents for our large exhibitions. More information about opportunities will be listed here when available.


Want a fun summer volunteer position that will also give you great experience with museums, art and children? Become a summer art camp counselor. We are looking for college students from all majors who are available at least 15 hours per week during June and July. Counselors have primary responsibility of children ages 4-12 (age changes each week) and work with art instructors to prepare projects, teach in the galleries and lead the children through exercises both art-related and outdoors. Come be a kid again while also gaining job skills and making contacts. Applications can be found here.
