Internships

Can Comm Arts help?

Yes. The instructor for CMM 490 maintains a list of sites that have employed students in the past and can offer suggestions based upon your major and interest area(s). See the “Interns Wanted” section of this site or the “Recent Places SHC Students Have Interned” section for ideas.

Why intern?

The short answer is because it’s required for Comm Arts and Graphic Design majors :-)  The longer answer is that internships provide students with meaningful work experience in their chosen profession while benefiting the professional to whom he or she is assigned.  They provide a link between the classroom and the workplace.  They help students gain career experience and portfolio pieces. They help students learn to function as part of a team in a work environment. MOST IMPORTANTLY…Employers look for internships on recent graduates’ resumes.
