COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY STUDENT BENEFITS
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
ANNUAL UNDERGRADUATE SYMPOSIUM
Each spring the museum hosts a symposium for undergraduate students on an exhibition-related theme. This is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in a public scholarly symposium. This program is open and free to the public.
The Hunter Museum invites undergraduate students to explore the concept of placemaking at the Sixth Annual Student Symposium on Sunday, March 24 from 1 - 3 pm. Students are asked to present interdisciplinary papers featuring original research that explores a specific example of placemaking. The theme of the symposium emerges from the Hunter Museum’s new lobby installation and exhibition of work by Alyson Shotz.
An abstract of no more than 500 words is due by February 8. Find out more details below.
SPECIAL EXHIBITION DOCENT OPPORTUNITIES
The museum occasionally works with college students to become docents for our large exhibitions. More information about opportunities will be listed here when available.
The Hunter Museum offers unpaid internships for undergraduates, graduate students, as well as recent graduates, during the fall and spring semesters and in the summer.
