Gain valuable, real-world experience with an internship

The most consistent message the A.Q. Miller School receives from employers is, "send us graduates who have some experience in the field." Internships are a great way to start building a base of experience — and get classroom credit at the same time.

The A.Q. Miller School does not officially place student interns, but it does coordinate efforts to provide a positive experience. Internships are a coordinated effort between several key individuals:

  • Intern
    An eligible student who has completed departmental prerequisites.
  • Site supervisor
    A professional in the work world with the required desire and media industry education and training to provide a student intern with a meaningful, college-level, work experience. The site supervisor acts as a mentor and guide to the intern and provides feedback on the intern’s progress to both the intern and SMC.
  • Faculty coordinator
    A faculty member who academically guides the student through the internship. The faculty coordinator verifies the academic validity of the experience and assists the intern in establishing meaningful learning objectives and recognizing the learning which has occurred. The faculty coordinator determines the final grade for the internship.
