Most AC+D students participate in credit-bearing internships relevant to their particular field of interest. Internship providers are wide-ranging and include museums and galleries, design firms, artist practices, fabricators, and retail companies.
International students are able to participate in internships (paid or unpaid) through Curricular Practical Training (CPT) beginning in their second semester. Upon successful completion of AC+D program, international students may also be eligible for Optional Practical Training (OPT) which is temporary employment directly related to an F-1 student’s major area of study. Eligible students can apply to receive up to 12 months of OPT employment authorization after graduation.
