The Hussian School of Art ® Internship Program provides a critical link between a student’s education and employment that only direct work experience can provide.
Hussian School of Art ® also maintains a strong bond with our experienced alumni. Employers who may have opportunities to hire one of our talented graduates may use this form to contact our offices to arrange for a qualified applicant to contact you.
The Internship Program is part of the senior elective curriculum. Students wishing to take advantage of the Internship Program will earn one (1) full credit for every forty-five (45) hours on location. Internships are generally limited to one or two days a week. Tuesdays and Thursdays are the preferred days for this experience but alternate days may be discussed. However, interns are not available for work on Fridays.
Students are selected by you through portfolio interviews. Usually students related to your needed artistic discipline are sent to interview for this opportunity. The responsibilities of the internship employer are not difficult or time consuming, but do require that a supervisor be assigned to monitor the intern and act as a liaison with the school. The student should be permitted to perform tasks that would be expected of any junior level employee.
EMPLOYER REQUIREMENTS FOR INTERNS
