Graduate Internships 

Students completing a 2-year or 3+ graduate degree program in the following studio based disciplines are required to complete a summer internship: Architecture, Interior Architecture, Industrial Design, Landscape Architecture, and Visual Communication Design.  The internship takes place during the summer session between 1st and 2nd year of the 2-year program and within the summer session prior to the final year of the 3+ program. 

Internships are recorded for credit on a student’s Plan of Study by register for a two (2) credit internship course in the summer and a one (1) credit Internship course in fall semester. Please note that students in the Master of Architecture and Master of Landscape Architecture will register for the one (1) credit Internship course in the spring term prior to the two (2) credit internship course in the summer.

Internship firms and agencies are approved by The Design School in advance and can be completed anywhere in the world. 

In addition, Studio Night is an annual networking event hosted by The Design School to help design firms meet with our students. We host the event in our design studios where students present their past and current work from their desks. We have found that this informal format accompanied by food and conversation provides firms with an opportunity to meet a large group of prospective interns while offering students the chance to network with a wide array of potential employers.  This event is held in the spring semester in February and is a great resource for students to obtain an internship.
