Internships are an important step in preparing for your professional life. Internships provide opportunities to gain experience in a potential career field, connect classroom learning to practical applications, gain valuable resume-building experience, and develop strong networking skills. Internships make students more competitive applicants for jobs and/or graduate school. In Art History and Studio Art, students have worked with organizations such as the Annie Russell Theatre, Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Disney, Lure Design, Orlando Museum of Art, Real Thread, and Sotheby's.
