Art New York is an exciting internship program in which students (excluding freshman) from any field and department at the University of Rochester live in New York City while working at an internship in a prestigious art, media or cultural institution and taking 2 classes to complete a full 16 credit semester. Students are immersed in the incredible expanse of cultural production that NY holds. In one of the classes students will learn about new media culture and new media production, while in the other we will be viewing, reading about and discussing many different forms of contemporary art, new media, video and film. Students are totally involved in the rich landscape that NY is while gaining valuable job skills and work experience as an insider in the NY art and cultural world.
When it comes to arranging for an internship program, we try to match the student’s interests as best we can with an internship opportunity. We can place students in internships in fields such as Film and Media production, Film and Media PR/marketing, Visual Art, Photography, Animation, Visual Effects, Special Effects, Theatre and others.
Art New York constitutes a full cluster in the humanities. Also, there is some flexibility as to how you can apply your credits. An application can be downloaded from the Department of Art and Art History’s website.
