In the final semester of the programme, you are to conduct a research internship at a museum or heritage institution of choice. This can be in the Netherlands or elsewhere in the world in accordance with a pre-approved proposal. You can choose an internship at one of our partners on a set topic or independently develop your own ideas and research questions as another organization.
During the internship you will conduct the research needed for your final product and operate as a professional within the framework of the internship providing institution. You can thus apply and sharpen your professional skills in a learning environment.
The final product of the internship will be either an academic thesis, an exhibition proposal, a policy document or a creative work. We encourage our students to produce something with practical value, but based on sound research and ethical reflection.
