Liberty Hall is currently looking for Museum Education Interns for the Fall 2024 semester. The goal of the internship program at Liberty Hall is to allow students to see all aspects of a Historic House Museum.  Interns will lead field trips, design educational materials, and research, develop, and conduct their own education program!  Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but the priority is August 1, 2024. Interested applicants should send a resume and cover letter explaining their qualifications and interest in Liberty Hall to Hannah Gaston, Education Coordinator, at hgaston@kean.edu.



Our May Kean Raynolds Graduate Museum Studies Fellow is offered to graduate students in a master’s program in Museum Studies, History, or a related field.

The fellowship is designed to provide a mentored professional development opportunity to graduate students seeking careers within a museum setting.  Fellowships are tailored to the student’s individual educational goals and provide opportunities to explore multiple areas of museum work while gaining specialized skills and experience. Projects may include but are not limited to the design, development, and delivery of innovative programming for diverse audiences, collections management, exhibit development, and marketing design and implementation, all based on the fellow’s interest. 

Fellows will work approximately 20 hours per week throughout the 30-week fellowship.  Work hours are flexible and will be scheduled during museum operating hours.  The fellowship will begin in October 2024 and continue through June of 2025. The museum is easily accessed by New Jersey Transit trains on the Raritan Valley line.

To apply, please submit the following to Maryellen McVeigh at marymcv@kean.edu by September 15, 2024. Please indicate May Kean Raynolds Fellowship in the subject line.
