Internships

As a core component of the College of Charleston's arts management curriculum, all students (majors and minors) are required to successfully complete a three-credit internship. A credit-worthy internship includes working 120 hours over the course of a full semester at an arts-oriented organization. Students may complete an internship during the fall, spring, or summer semesters. Internships are arranged individually according to student needs, career goals, and skills.

Arts Management internships provide students with valuable exposure to the working world and increase chances for future employment. Internships also provide students with the opportunity to network and make connections that may lead to a future full-time, paid position within the arts management field. In some cases, arts management graduates have been hired by the organization that sponsored their internship. Internships give students a chance to apply what they have learned about in the classroom, while also allowing them to "test the waters" to see if an anticipated career is right for them. The internship also provides the sponsoring organization a unique opportunity to help develop future arts leaders.
