Degree Name

Master of Arts in Arts Administration




In January of 2012, I began an internship with the San Antonio Museum of Art. At the time, the Education Department was engrossed in an audience research study, designed to strengthen the Museum’s understanding of its constituents. This study was my entry-point into the organization and where all my efforts were focused over the course of my internship. This paper includes: an organizational summary; an account of my internship experiences; a SWOT analysis; a review of industry best practices; and recommendations based on observations acquired over the course of my internship.
