Exposure to a professional environment is a critical component in the education of a designer. This required experience guides students in preparing for and acquiring an internship position. Preparation includes developing materials such as a professional design resume and portfolio, identifying internship opportunities, conducting formal business communication, and internship acquisition. In addition to attending three workshops held throughout the school year, thirty contact hours are required for every 1 credit hour earned. B.F.A. Graphic and Interactive majors are required to complete 3 internship credits. Internship opportunities should be within a professional design environment, ideally under the mentorship of at least one design professional, and be approved by the internship coordinator/instructor. Internship credits are issued after the submission of required forms and a designed experience journal or formal presentation.
