Berkshire Hills Internship Program/North Adams, MA (Massachusetts-Western/Springfiel)
Berkshire Hills Internship Program (B-HIP), a program of MCLA's Berkshire Cultural Resource Center, is a structured arts management internship course that helps to integrate theoretical concepts and real-world experience. An intensive twelve-week program, B-HIP runs in Summer and it combines an internship component with a seminar in arts management, talk backs with the area's leading arts professionals, and full participation in cultural events throughout Berkshire County (Western Massachusetts).
Interns work in a multitude of administrative capacities including development, marketing, public relations and programming as they gain hands-on experience in the field of arts management. Each internship is hand-tailored to suite each interns' needs, interests and talents. Former interns have worked at institutions such as The Clark Art Institute, MASS MoCA, Berkshire Living Magazine, Shakespeare and Company, and more!
MCLA's tuition rates are generally lower than those of comparable institutions; these same fees apply to the credit a B-HIP intern earns. Scholarships and tuition reductions are available on a limited basis.
Interns receive a $100 weekly stipend and are provided with housing accommodations in North Adams, MA.
B-HIP is a 12-credit course that is open to college students (juniors and seniors), recent graduates, and working professionals. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.5. Nonprofit, business, and/or arts management coursework or experience in the field is helpful. Applicants should be passionate about the arts management field and be prepared for an intensive twelve weeks. Interns are required to be available for the full program (see website for dates).
