Internships in Arts Administration
Graphic Communication, Music, & Theatre

A cornerstone of the Fine and Performing Arts curriculum is an internship program in which students may gain hands-on experience with an arts-related business or organization. Under the supervision of a faculty advisor, students work at least ten hours per week in assignments ranging from management, marketing, and fund-raising, to technical assistance and product development. A site mentor provides day-to-day guidance, and students meet regularly with the faculty coordinator and other interns to discuss and evaluate their experience.

Graphic Communication Internships provide students with the opportunity to work in the design department of a New-York-based corporation, cultural institution, advertising agency, design firm, or publication. Some of the sites where Baruch students have completed internships are:
