Graphic Design internships are strongly recommended for all graphic design students.


  • provide a professional experiential learning environment beyond the classroom.
  • enhance students’ skills, professionalism, networking, and ethics centered around equity.
  • prepare graduates for transition from student to practicing professional.
  • bridge the gap between the classroom and the business of graphic design, helping students understand applied design through client-based projects.
  • drive students to reach beyond their comfort zone and broaden their skills and experiences.
  • help students seek successful employment after graduation within the design industry with employers seeking to hire designers with professional experience.
