Comments about previous experiences working with students

Students have worked on a variety projects as curatorial interns, many of which are tailored to directly meet the students' goals and the needs of the institution. Past projects have included original research, developing research guides for patron use, assisting with exhibition planning and installation, writing articles for the Ransom Center's magazine, creating draft inventories of under-described collections, and assisting with visiting classes and public programs.
