In addition to required internships, students can participate in the one-credit Career Exploration Internship (CEI) course. This course increases student’s exposure to areas of the fashion, marketing and related industries in an area relevant to their career goals and experience.

At the end of the semester students will be evaluated and graded by their supervisor. As part of the Career Exploration Internship, students must prepare three job-related objectives and maintain a journal to document how progress towards those objectives was achieved.

Requirements include

  • Minimum of a 3.0 GPA
  • Approval of your position by the Department of Experiential Education & Career Management
  • You cannot be enrolled in another credited internship during the same semester
