Our Internships are all over the map!

Our Internships are all over the map!

Barbara Fiocchi | Jan 31, 2014

Every year we bid our students a fond farewell as they head out to internships all around the states, and sometimes beyond!­

Some students have several internships throughout their undergraduate or graduate career. Internships serve several important functions~ Of course they give a student a chance to work in a variety of places, geographically as well as actual workplaces.­ Internships are a great way to 'try on' a job or deepen your experience in an area of interest.­ This past fall semester a student who is on track­ as a costume technician spent some time working Cirque Du Soliel's Ka in Las Vegas.­ She was given the opportunity to work in the costume shop, wardrobe, and she even spent a few days in the props shop.­ Internships are also a stepping stone to professional work.­ If a company has a job opening the student who is working in the shop or is in the cast as an extra has the added weight of being on the spot, you are a known entity.­

Below is a list of places that our students, graduates and undergraduates, have interned over the years- our faculty understands how important internships are and the role that we play in setting up the paths that lead to good internships.
