What is your dream career?

Maybe you’re a history buff and would like to find ways to interpret the past and present by working as a museum curator, archivist, or public historian.

Perhaps you’ve been waiting to turn your passion for writing, marketing, and web design into a sustainable career.

Or you want to engage diverse communities fostering civic, social, and cultural dialogue, through fundraising for a local non-profit organization.

Chart your own path

Faculty and staff, fellow students, and alumni are all eager to support you as you explore the Logan Museum of Anthropology, the Wright Museum of Art, and the College Archives and begin to tell stories about the items you uncover there. In your courses, your on-campus work, and the internship opportunities you pursue, you will learn about organizing documents, artifacts, data and how to make the knowledge you gain accessible and engaging to a wider public.

We connect you with opportunities

Study off-campus and intern at world-renowned research and cultural institutions including the Newberry Library and the Field Museum in Chicago, and museums and libraries connected with The Philadelphia Center. Or experience a behind-the-scenes tour at one of these sites through the college’s annual Career Trek.

Study abroad worldwide to engage with galleries, museums, and archives. Enroll in curating courses, take an arts management course, or learn conservation techniques at partner institutions while still receiving Beloit College support and advising.

Internships and campus jobs introduce you to the history of Beloit and surrounding communities, while providing hands-on experience with collections management, exhibit design, and other aspects of cultural heritage work.

Through their connections to cultural institutions in Beloit, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison, Channels mentors can guide you to internship and career opportunities in the Midwest  and beyond.
