MECA&D encourages students to participate in internships as a means of gaining real-world experience and a better understanding of potential career paths. Faculty highly recommend these opportunities to apply studio studio skill in an supervised setting. We meet with each student individually to assess personal and professional goals. Based on a student's interest, we work together to craft a local, national or international internship opportunity.
