Benefit from an internship with a professional in your field to deepen your involvement in classroom work and foster a network for future employment or study. Many FAA graduates land jobs where they interned or meet artists they collaborate with over a lifetime.
Landscape architecture and theatre studies majors must complete an internship to earn a degree. Students in other majors can shape their own internships by choosing a faculty member, determining the number of academic credit hours, and deciding on a project (such as a final paper, a performance, a planning diagram, or a piece of art). Credit is earned in either a designated internship course (ARTD 399 or THEA 490) or an independent study with the faculty member. Discuss your options with an advisor—and bring your own ideas.
