Internships


DIGITAL MEDIA SENIOR PROJECT
As part of this capstone course for Digital Art and Graphic Design majors, internships are offered by local community members and businesses to students interested in furthering a career within the commercial realm of design. Students have the option of finding their own position or choosing from some of our on-going relationships, including Splash Magazine and Coco Design. This is a 3-credit course and a requirement for the BFA degree specializing in Digital Art and the BA in Graphic Design. It can be used once as the capstone to either degree and is repeatable as a 4000-level elective. 120 total work hours are required for completion.

ART EDUCATION INTERNSHIP
In this capstone course of the Art Education Specialization, student teachers can elect an elementary school setting, a secondary art classroom, or both. All internships are limited to Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Credit earned may vary from 6 to 12 hours, depending on the length of the internship assignments. Students who select the full 12-hour option should not enroll in additional coursework, or pursue employment during the Art Internship experience. Graded on satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis only.

MUSEUM OR GALLERY PRACTICUM
Art History majors, who plan careers in a museum setting, can elect a capstone experience that provides them with practical experience in managing and promoting a museum or art gallery. Placements in several area non-profit organizations are possible, but students must seek official approval from all parties, well in advance of the actual registration for the practicum. While students participate in a full range of museum/gallery activities, they are also expected to complete a specific project. Course offered concurrently with ARH 5947. Graduate students will be assigned additional work.
