Equipping a New Generation of
Southern Scholars

The chronicle of the South’s visual and material culture is a relatively young field of formal study. By engaging college students on the topic and by encouraging post-graduates pursuing advanced degrees, the collection hopes to cultivate the next class of Southern historians.

Undergraduate Internships

In support of Spartanburg’s designation as a “College Town, USA” and in accord with the Johnson family’s strong commitment to education, the Johnson Collection currently offers two competitive, comprehensive internships to students at Converse College and Wofford College each academic year. Open to senior art history majors with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher with an interest in employment or advanced study in the field, these semester-long placements offer selected students the opportunity to advance research and curatorial skills.
