Internships are key to the academic experience at RIT. For example, students in the museum studies program of the college of liberal arts are working alongside research scientists from the college of science to create, test, and iterate a low-cost spectral imaging system and software to recover obscured and illegible text on historical documents. Enhancing the work of library, archive, and museum professionals and generously funded by the National Endowment of the Humanities, this project is only one of the many experiential learning opportunities undertaken by RIT museum studies students.
