Internship Opportunity

Off-site Intern Opportunity Promoting the Park w/CADVC Staff

The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture, UMBC is offering an off-site internship opportunity this summer 2020. An internship at CADVC is taken for a letter grade and can be taken for one credit or up to six credits a semester, repeatable up to 12 credits. Each credit is worth 40 hours.

Summer interns will be fully integrated into the off-site work that CADVC staff have been involved in since the campus went online in mid-March. As such it is important that interns have reliable online access and know how to use collaborative files on Google Drive and BOX.

Interns will be expected to attend weekly online meetings via WebEx and to be available for occasional unscheduled phone calls or virtual meetings during the business day. Hours and dates of the internship are flexible. Accommodations can be made for time off for travel or to extend internship summer hours into the fall semester, etc. as needed.

As with all CADVC internships the student must register for PRAC with the UMBC Career Office and for ART 498 CADVC Internship after receiving permission to register by the CADVC supervisor. CADVC Internships are awarded on a competitive basis, so you must attend a virtual interview and be accepted in order to register for the internship.

To apply, please send your resume, the completed (first page only) of the attached form, and a cover email letter to abbotts@umbc.edu. In the email state what you want to accomplish with a virtual CADVC internship this summer and write "INTERNSHIP - (your name)" as part of your email subject line. Also attached here are some documents listing various project ideas. Please comment on any that may be of interest to you in your email as well.
