The Aquarium is looking for volunteers in a variety of areas. In addition to making a difference, you’ll meet new friends and enjoy numerous benefits, such as free admission and discounts.
Mystic Aquarium’s intern program is designed to provide college students and recent college graduates with a dynamic educational opportunity while simultaneously providing career experience. Our unique program combines independent project research, public educational outreach, and work experience in the department of choice; all under the guidance of an Aquarium supervisor. We accept 1-3 interns per semester in each department, allowing a close working relationship between intern and accomplished Aquarium staff.
The internship program reflects our mission, “to inspire people to care for and protect our ocean planet through conservation, education, and research.” Internships are available fall, spring and summer in most departments throughout our institution, allowing students of all academic majors to experience the unique character of the Aquarium and enhance their personal and professional development.
