Internships

Karli MooreKarli Moore

Karli Moore is a current student in the Museum Studies program at Aurora University. Her interest in the program stemmed from a love of museums. “I frequently visited museums with my parents while we went on vacation,” Moore said, “and I enjoyed seeing and learning new things.” A Museum Studies minor also paired well with her History major.

As a requirement for the program, Moore is completing an internship at Blackberry Farm in Aurora. There she has been fortunate enough to have the experience of co-curating exhibits, something she will also do as a student in the Museum Exhibitions class this semester.
