Internships & Alumni Success

Internship Opportunities

The Department of Art & Design has created a very active and continually growing professional internship program. Students who meet qualification standards through excellence in class work are eligible to interview for and obtain an internship at one of our corporate partners, based on available opportunities. Virtually all of our seniors take part in this program which places students in professional positions at local design, advertising, and marketing companies. The internship program is a key component in preparing students for entry into the professional world of design.
