Students majoring in Interdisciplinary Arts with a specialization in Arts Leadership are required to take a five-credit Arts Leadership Internship at a local arts organization that combines classroom learning with real-world experience.
The Arts Leadership Internship integrates and applies the arts administration theories being learned in coursework with the realities of the workplace. This internship will provide students the opportunity to apply their knowledge in resource development, arts marketing, audience development and general management to actual positions within Puget Sound arts organizations.
Students cannot register for their internship class (ARTL-4950) via SU Online. There is a multi-step registration process students must initiate, ideally 4 weeks prior to the start of the quarter during which they would like to intern. Please follow our process for the Arts Leadership program as outlined below:
You will learn more about these requirements during your meeting with your faculty supervisor.
