Current Internship Courses
You will enroll in an internship course (ARTS 2600 - Internship 1). Enrollment in the course is managed with an application and interview process that is completed prior to the start of your semester abroad.
The internship is arranged with support from the host university after you apply to the program. In your host university application, you will indicate your desire for an internship and complete an application to enroll in the course. Placement will be based on your prior academic studies, personal goals, and an informal online interview. Internships are highly sought after and it is recommended that you begin the application process at least two months before you arrive. If you are successful, you will be enrolled in the internship course after you arrive.
