The student guide program is an opportunity for University of Minnesota students to lead thematic tours of the museum for the University community and the public. Interested students complete an application, interview for the program, and participate in a comprehensive training. The training requires a time commitment similar to that of an academic course and includes exploration of the museum’s collection, discussions on the methodology of museum tours, and facilitating a tour for your peers. After completing the training program, students will give museum tours and participate in weekly meetings throughout the year. This is an excellent opportunity for students to integrate art into their experience at the University and to become part of the WAM community. The program is open to all University of Minnesota undergraduate and graduate students. Students in all majors are encouraged to apply.
*Note: You must be able to attend all training sessions and commit to at least one full academic year of service.
Applications are now closed for the 2016-17 class. Contact Jamee Yung for more information.
