Arts and Culture Studies and a Museum Internship in South Africa
Part learning/travel abroad, part internship - this hybrid program provides opportunities to explore and participate in contemporary art and culture in South Africa. South Africa has a rich history of expressive culture dating from some of the world’s first examples of rock art to today’s art that reflects the complexities of a multi-cultural society undergoing tremendous transformations. Before the end of apartheid and the establishment of a new government in 1994, much of the nation’s art, music, history, and culture were little known to the rest of the world. Through site visits, conversations with arts professional and museum staff, art-making, and reflection activities, students critically assess the social, racial, religious, political, and cultural factors that impact contemporary art and the institutions charged with preserving and presenting culture.
The total program runs for approximately 9 weeks: one pre-travel week of instruction via Google Hangout; 3 weeks of instructional travel in Johannesburg/Pretoria and Cape Town (with a two-day side trip to Kruger National Park) followed by a five week internship in a major museum or cultural heritage organization in Cape Town.
For those who are interested, this program also provides participants with an opportunity to complete seven of the requisite 15 credits needed to obtain a transcriptable Museum Studies specialization for undergraduates or a certificate for graduate and lifelong education students. The program accepts lifelong education students as well as those enrolled in other college programs, both domestically and internationally.
For more detailed information and to read blogs from students in past programs, go here.
Deadline for enrollment is March 1, 2018 but only six spots available and acceptance is on a rolling basis so early commitment strongly encouraged.
