Internship & Research Opportunities

Internships provide real-world experience for students and positions can often be held for credit.

Finding internships: Start looking for an internship early and apply both locally and nationally. Speak with professors and professionals in your intended field for suggestions and opportunities. When searching for opportunities, we recommend creative online searches and even calling institutions to ask about opportunities. We recommend contacting GoGlobal for a list of internships and working with the Writing Center to improve your resume, cover letter, and application.

Applying: Please read our list of tips on applying for an internship. Students who have found art-related internships and would like to earn university credit while completing the internship may enroll in Art 393 – Internships in Art. Contact Professor Gail Simpson for more information.
