While internships are not mandatory, students are encouraged to seek them. Students have interned at regional arts councils and graphic design majors often participate in internships at advertising agencies.
Students who majored in art have gone on to work in a variety of professions, including architecture, education, art therapy, graphic design and the fine arts. Others have gone on to pursue graduate degrees.
"Not only is the art program intimate, you also get to work closely with talented and successful artists who bring their real world knowledge and experience to the classroom. I loved the small classes and the relationships I built with my classmates and instructors. This program allows students and teachers to creatively grow together.
During my coursework I was able to design icons for two nonprofit organizations, an amazing opportunity to work within the brand guidelines of already existing organizations. I plan to further improve my design skills in the Graphic Design graduate program at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design and to pursue a career in marketing, advertising or other creative field."
