Internships

Toward the end of your Simpson career in the Art Department, you will have the opportunity to fulfill an internship that is directly related to your chosen artistic focus. We believe that a college education should extend beyond the syndicated experience of the classroom. The practical experience of an internship, such as working with a professional artist or in a design firm, can better demonstrate the validity of ideas rehearsed in the classroom as well as lead to higher learning. Furthermore, we believe this practical experience can prove to be a great advantage in the competitive job market.
