Internships

Frequently a culminating experience for art majors is ART 4400 Internship. This component is designed to provide Art and Art History Program majors with an educational experience that will integrate theoretical ideas, gained from the art program into practice. During an Art Internship placement, the art major may practice and test knowledge gained in the classroom as well as learn how knowledge and expertise from studio, design and art history are applied in the work site. An Art Iinternship placement is designed to provide art majors with the opportunity to develop competencies that are necessary to assume professional responsibilities in public, private, corporate, community, and/or academic settings. The Art Internship should help students meet their professional goals. 

 

The following items are principles and guidelines that you should consider when selecting and planning your internship:

1.   The student will play an active role in selecting the internship site.

2.   The student will play an active role in planning the internship experience.

3.   The student will select the internship site based on their professional goals.

4.   The internship should meet the "real" needs of the agency in terms of needs assessment, 
      program planning, implementation, and evaluation.

5.   The internship should be designed to provide the student with a wide variety of opportunities
      and experiences that are reflective of actual responsibilities of art professionals.

6.   The internship will take place under the supervision and guidance of an individual who can 
      create learning experiences out of actual work situations.

7.   The internship supervisor should be knowledgeable in the student's area of specialization.

8.   Students will be evaluated in terms of their (a) increased understanding, knowledge, and 
      abilities specific to the internship and (b) contributions to the agency's program.
