Internship Opportunities, Summer 2018

The Oneida Community Mansion House is pleased to again offer two internship opportunities for undergraduate students. For Summer 2018, OCMH is offering an internship in museum collections and an internship in public programming.

The OCMH does not offer stipends at this time; however, our institution is happy to work with students who are applying through their accredited college or university to obtain credit for this unique experiential learning opportunity. OCMH can provide housing for the course of the internship. For any questions about the application process, please contact OCMH by phone: 315-363-0745 or contact Molly Jessup, curator of education. 

The OCMH is a 19th century National Historic Landmark built by and for the utopian socialist Oneida Community in central New York State. OCMH comprises 93,000 square feet of interior space sited on over 200 acres of landscaped grounds. The Mansion House includes exhibits, period rooms, a library, and continues to provide lodging and residential housing. OCMH conducts programming and sponsors research on 19th and early 20th century society and themes, such as communitarianism, gender, class, childhood, agriculture, industrialization, artistic expression, and craft work.
