Student Snapshot: Emily Angelucci ’24  

Emily Angelucci '22

Emily Angelucci ’24 is a double major in archaeology and anthropology and a former Dickinson tour guide who enjoys photography, classic literature and learning about global cultures. A class in museum studies, offered through the art-history department, led Emily to an internship at The Trout Gallery, Dickinson’s campus museum. Through that experience, Emily learned how to plan and present a professional-quality exhibition. She also learned art techniques, how museum staff develop and maintain relationships with donors, and how museum pieces are catalogued.

I interned at The Trout Gallery. I actually created this internship with Professor of Art History Phillip Earenfight after taking his museum-studies course.
