Arts internship program

Real working experience while you earn credits!

The Arts Internship Program places undergraduate students in unpaid, for-credit internships with local non-profit organizations and community partners.

More than 30 community partners

We have placement opportunities with more than 30 community partners and we continue to add more each year.

Flexible, community-based learning

This community-based learning internship adds valuable workplace experience to the arts degree by allowing students to develop practical skills that relate directly to their academic studies.

Internships generally consist of completing weekly hands-on work activities in addition to preparing a major project related to the ongoing work of the organization or partner with which the student is placed.

How to apply

General program information

Earn 3 or 6 credit hours

Internships are available in two 3ch options, ARTS 3001 (fall) and ARTS 3002 (winter) and one 6ch option, ARTS 3000 (fall & winter), depending on the placement.

Time commitment

Over the course of the internship term(s), participants should expect to spend seven hours per week onsite in addition to conducting reading and research that relates directly to the major project. While each individual placement requires certain specialized skills or previous experience, all require students who can work independently and have good communication (both verbal and written) and research skills.
