Performance Learning Extended Through Internships

An Arts Technology internship will provide students with the opportunity for Performance Learning through cooperation with an external company, organization, or individual.  Students will collaborate with faculty to develop academic learning goals specific to the work of the external partner, and practice arts technology skills under the supervision of industry professionals.

Internship Forms

Additional Policies

Students will not be assigned to an internship site. Students may find internship opportunities on their own, or may chose to interview for positions already identified. Students are advised to register through our College Central Network/Big Blue Jobs system so they are notified via email when jobs or internships relating to their interest are added. Some internships listed below are better suited for certain concentrations. Students should discuss the internship with faculty before applying to confirm it is a good fit for their career interests. On campus internships are more available for the Visual Media concentration and the Video Production concentration. Regardless, it is HIGHLY recommended that students participate in at least one internship off campus.
