Art Internships

The SUNY Oneonta Art Department's internship program offers opportunities to earn college credit while working on-site in a professional setting. Internship experiences often become a factor in locating employment upon graduation.

Qualified juniors and seniors can earn from 1 to 15 credits by working at a business or institution related to their field of interest. During an internship, students gain first-hand experience in the day to day operations of businesses, corporations, galleries, or schools.

Helen & Michel Casper Fellowship for Internship Support:  This fellowship was created through charitable gifts by 1975 SUNY Oneonta graduate Andrea Casper in honor and memory of her parents, the Helen & Michael Casper Fellowship for Internship Support is intended to make internship experiences more accessible to students. In the past, the committee has funded students travel, relocation and living expenses, tuition, and assisted in offsetting lost wages due to unpaid internships. Enrolled students interning this summer for academic credit or for related experience (non-credit) are highly encouraged to apply. Detailed application instructions are attached. Please view the CDC website for additional information and to view other scholarship opportunities.
