WHAT IS AN INTERN?
Every field of education benefits from internships because internship experiences provide what an academic setting cannot. Providing an excellent education in Graphic Design, Illustration, and Studio Art is at the core of our mission in Art & Design at Sacred Heart University. However, internships provide invaluable practical experience as well as a contact base that that will be essential in the job search process. In addition, internship programs allow employers to get a jump-start on training talent entering the workforce for the first time. The Graphic Design profession and community are served best when an internship experience is one that minimizes the contrast between what a student experiences in the academic situation and what they will experience in the professional environment.
