Internships In the Creative Media Major

Create a Highly Marketable Creative Media Résumé

The Creative Media major will provide you with a great depth in the specific skills that will allow you to approach and creatively solve problems—which is highly attractive to employers—while integrating the knowledge you gained in your specializations to give you the most flexibility in the rapidly evolving global marketplace.  

Because you'll follow an in-depth curriculum starting in your first semester, you'll be qualified sooner for internships. Creative Media majors have interned with local arts centers, including the Flynn Center for Performing Arts, in roles such as gallery intern, design intern, and events intern.
