Joanna's Story

Joanna, a double major in Italian and art history, was chosen for the prestigious internship at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Italy.  Joanna had always known she wanted to be an art history major. She chose Rutgers because it was an hour away from New York City and the best museums in America. While Joanna had been studying Italian since middle school, she originally continued taking Italian classes her first year at rutgers to fill a requirement for the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program and then just stayed with it because she loved the department and how it is "full of amazing and wonderful professors". Joanna interned at the Center for Italian Modern Art in New York and studied abroad in Ferrara, Italy during her time at Rutgers. After this internship, Joanna plans to return to the U.S. for graduate school for a master's in art history. After that she says she would love to get into academia or work at a museum.
