In collaboration with the Fleishman Center's Career Development Centralized Internship (CDCI) program, the Binghamton University Art Museum manages a cohort of internships in a variety of positions including curatorial, collections management, public programming, outreach, social media, graphic design and videography. Offered every fall and spring, the 2-credit course allows students gain practical 'hands-on' experience in museum careers at the Binghamton University Art Museum where they develop marketable skills and learn about the professional nature of the workplace reflecting upon that knowledge in a seminar setting. The seminar is the academic component of the internship where students will address relevant contemporary issues in museums as well as professional and career development issues pertaining to the nature of their experience through journaling, assignments, class presentations and discussion. In addition to the course, interns are expected to work 60 hours over the course of the semester. Internship positions advertised through HireBing in the fall and spring.

The museum offers free tours and programs for educators. Teachers may apply for a Transportation Grant, established and paid for by the museum to defer the costs associated with traveling to the museum.
