Internships & Opportunities

Internship Practicum FAQ’s

Students are encouraged to contact the Practicum Professor to make sure the opportunity fits theses requirements:

  • Complete 120 total hours
  • Under an Art/Photography/Graphic Design supervisor to maximize mentorship
  • Work on Art/Photography/Graphic Design projects (not just getting coffee)
  • Complete Approval Form & Agreement of Hours BEFORE starting internship

An internship is a great way to explore different career paths. Students learn a lot in a short amount of time by experiencing what it is like to work in their field of interest. Internships help connect the course work to the professional world and the networking can lead to full-time employment.
