Welcome to Independent Study & Internship!
All Graphic Communication Majors must complete an Independent Study/Internship prior to graduating. Pre-requisites for ART 5000/5010 are:
Each semester, there is a mandatory meeting for all students who would like to be considered for Independent Study/Internship for the following semester. This meeting is usually held in the middle of the semester on a Thursday during club hours in Room VC7-130.
After this orientation meeting, you will be required to submit a Letter of Intent, Resume and Portfolio. If you are planning on doing an Independent Study, you will also be required to create a proposal for the project you would like to realize. This must be done by a specific date to be announced at the meeting.
If you already know you would like to do an Independent Study rather than an Internship, please have an idea of what you would like to do.
If you are enrolled in any 3000 level Graphics Communication class, you will be notified by email about the meeting. There will also be posters in the Graphic Communication classrooms and on the Department of Fine & Performing Arts bulletin board.
Please note: Independent Study and Internship are offered in Fall and Spring ONLY.
