Student Guide Program at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum

The Student Guide Program offers students an opportunity to work closely with Museum staff, learn about the Museum's collections, and give tours to campus, community, and K-12 audiences. You need not be an art history major to apply! MHCAM Student Guides come from a wide variety of majors and disciplines. Successful candidates will be intellectually curious students with a diverse range of interests and backgrounds.

The student guide program meets on Friday afternoons for the full academic year -- applicants must be able to meet on Fridays during both the fall and spring semesters and plan their schedules accordingly.

Applicants will receive student employment compensation for participating in the program. Please email Nina Frank ( with any questions.
