» Internships

Graphic design majors are required to complete one mandatory internship and are encouraged to intern as often as they are able. The students partner with the Career and Professional Development and a Graphic Design faculty member as they work. Internship locations include design firms, advertising agencies, and industries with in-house design departments. Check back often for updates.
