Meet the Interns

The Commonwealth Center for Humanities and Society strongly encourages students to pursue hands-on learning through its internships with our regional Arts and Culture Partners. Education should not be confined to the campus. Internships allow students to develop relationships with Louisville's most important cultural institutions, acquire crucial skills, and gain experience that prepares them for professional life after graduation.
