School of Art Internship Program and ART 671

Internships are a way for students to get “real life” experience in the field, usually for several hours a week on a volunteer basis. The School of Art offers academic internships for credit through the course ART 671 Internships in the Visual Arts. (Students may also choose to do “career internships,” which they pursue on their own and for which they will not receive academic credit.) See the SFSU Internship guidelines here:

If you are planning to take ART 671 and receive credit for your internship, it is important to plan ahead. The semester before you plan to do an internship, you must attend School of Art Internship information session and choose a faculty sponsor to work with.
