Internships and Opportunities
Students in the Department of Art and Art History take part in numerous internships and other fieldwork experiences. These positions are often held for one academic semester and provide students with real world experience in the areas related to their interests. In the past students have interned in curatorial and research roles, as well as in the area of art business and marketing. These opportunities not only provide students with professional experience, but also give them an education in what employers will expect of them after graduation.
Lynn Curtis M.F.A, Assistant Professor of Drawing and Assistant Chair of the Department, serves as Internship Coordinator and in that capacity provides students with resources on how to go about acquiring an internship and receiving academic credit for internship work (when possible).
