The Arts Administration programs at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs
Sarah Dresser and Andrew Koch (2011) spent their internships at the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival in Colorado.
Each student is required to complete a 280 hour internship. These internships give students an excellent opportunity to apply classroom theory and techniques to real-life experiences. Students should register for AADM Y750 either in the summer between their second and third semesters, or in the spring following the third semester in the program. Students must be in good academic standing and file an internship contract with the SPEA Career Development Office (CDO) for approval before beginning internship work. To obtain credit, students must complete all required paperwork.
Internship experiences are available in the United States and abroad, and many have become permanent employment for past students.
