Real-World Studies

The Department of Art, Art History, Media and Design offers a wide range of internship opportunities to prepare you for a career in the fine arts, commercial arts, arts management, art education, and art services.

Students are required to participate in an internship program for at least one semester. We offer career plan seminars as well as provide tools for self promotion. During your senior year, you will have the opportunity to present a professional portfolio through an art exhibition, an oral presentation, and a written thesis.
