MEA 371 - Media Arts and Technology Internship

The objective of the internship is to allow the student to put classroom theory in her/his major into practice in order to gain work experience. Each student-intern is assigned to a coordinator who is knowledgeable about the student’s field. The coordinator helps the student secure internship placement in a work site related to the student’s major, or assists the student to “reconstruct” her/his present position as an internship, or develop – by special arrangement – an internship with her/his present employer, and serves as the student’s instructor and advisor during the field experience. Over a semester the Media Arts and Technology Internship requires a total of 150 hours, including but not limited to, hours at the internship site. In this course MEA students are expected to: intern approximately 10 hours a week, complete a term project assigned by the coordinator, and be evaluated by the work site supervisor. Students to be placed are expected to arrange their schedules so that they are free mornings or afternoons, Monday – Friday, or two to three full days per week.
