Over the past several years, the BYU College of Humanities has generously funded paid curatorial fellowships at the Museum of Art. These fellowships allow outstanding Humanities students to become immersed in the cross-disciplinary scholarship of curatorial practice. Students work closely with curators in developing exhibitions and performing in-depth research and writing.
Fellowship candidates may come from any of the Humanities programs, including:
- American Studies
- Art History and Curatorial Studies
- Classical Studies
- Comparative Literature
- Interdisciplinary Humanities
Fellowships are 15 hours/week for the duration of a semester, approximately 15 weeks. Hourly wages allow compensation at between $8-$9/hr.
Interested candidates should fill out a Humanities Fellowship application form.

Volunteers provide an invaluable service to the Museum of Art, the university, and the community. Fulfilling a vital link between the Museum’s exhibitions and its visitors, volunteers present lively educational tours of current exhibitions to community and family groups. Volunteers also lend support to the Museum’s many public programs, including Art After Dark events, Family Arts Festival, lectures, symposia. Volunteer docents who would like to give tours are required to attend the exhibition training(s), shadow at least two tours for the exhibition, and fulfill a tour practicum for senior education staff members.
