In all other BFA majors, students are required to complete a 4.5 credit/240 hour internship usually completed during the summer between the junior and senior year. In addition to completing the equivalent of a six-week full-time internship, students are also required to make a formal internship presentation to their department faculty and submit an internship journal, which includes a post-internship written self-reflective essay. The number of hours students spend in completing the summer internship, the follow-up presentation and other grading requirements slightly exceeds the minimum requirement of 3 hours of effort per credit.
This funded internship fellowship experience takes place during the summer between junior and senior year. Internships provide real world experience and an important opportunity to develop a professional network in preparation for a career in art and design. Moore's sizable network of professional alumnae and employers helps place students in challenging and exciting internships, many of which lead to careers after graduation.
The Locks Career Center assists students to identify and secure internships that align with their skills, ambitions, professional and personal goals. Internship placements must be pre-approved by the department chair and faculty supervisor and a signed contract must be filed with the Locks Career Center before the internship starts.
Art Education majors must complete a 12-week supervised student teaching assignment that will be arranged through the Art Education Department.
