The Student Guide Program at the Center offers Yale undergraduates the opportunity to work closely with the most comprehensive collection of British art outside the United Kingdom. Guides offer tours of the Center and its collections to the Yale community and the general public. This program seeks to encourage undergraduates to take advantage of this valuable resource on Yale’s campus.
Students of all majors are welcome. No prior knowledge of the field is required. Guides with at least one year in the program are offered an additional opportunity to curate an exhibition at the Center, under the guidance of the museum’s education, curatorial, and exhibition staff.
