Internships & Experiential Learning
Practice and build on what you learn in the classroom and gain valuable connections in the professional world.
The value of out-of-classroom experiences is beyond measure. These opportunities promote professional development, enhance your resume, and ultimately enable you to be well prepared to launch your careers after graduation.
The University of the Arts connects students to a wide variety of internship experiences that reinforce and expand classroom theory and practice. These educationally-based experiences allow students to explore possible career choices and gain a better understanding of a chosen field through professional growth.
Notable companies and organizations where UArts students have interned include MTV Networks, Conde Nast, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Cartoon Network, Broadway Dance Center, the National Gallery of Art and CNBC.
In addition, many internships take place within the studios of practicing artists, as well as in art galleries and museums, design firms, dance and theater companies, arts non-profits, and various local, regional and national companies in the creative industries.
Other experiential education opportunities include student teaching assignments for Art and Music Education graduate students, the NEUARTS: Neighborhood Engagement at the University of the Arts initiative that incorporates community engagement into selected courses, the UArts Summer Fellows Program which matches current students with alumni in their area of interest, and community service programs that provide an outlet for serving in the local community.
