Course: Graphic Design Internship (ART 3731S)
Approximate Cost:* Paid Internship (student must cover airfare)
Why you need to go: This particular course enables students to work with a professional team of designers, learn how to handle real life projects, explore cultural diversification and see the world. Most students are not well traveled and have limited exposure to the design world except through the World Wide Web. Design and its processes are not different in other parts of the world. What make the design different are the local culture, the environment, and its application.

January (last week) – Portfolio review + feedback for internship
February (last week) – Send portfolio to host offices
March (third week)- Mandatory orientation
