Student Guidelines

Please review the following guidelines regarding internships, based on your status as a Kent State University student or a Guest student.

We encourage all NYC Studio Students to engage in Industry experience whether through volunteering or an internship.

There are two ways to participate in an internship while studying at the NYC Studio:

  1. Internship for Credit: Enrollment in FDM 45192 - Fashion Merchandising or FDM 45292 - Fashion Design. Students must fulfill the necessary prerequisites in order to enroll in an internship for credit.
  2. Industry Learning Experience: Please contact Ms. Hillary M. Stone for details.

FDM 45192 - Fashion Merchandising and FDM 45292 - Fashion Design are in addition to the required NYC Studio based coursework. Taking an internship for credit does not count toward the 12 credit hours you are required to take at the studio.

Students must complete a total of 230 hours of supervised work per semester during enrollment. Because Fashion Design and Merchandising Internships may vary, please contact Ms. Hillary M. Stone, Industry Liaison-Internship Director, via email at hstone1@kent.edu for further information, recommendations, and resources.

We encourage all NYC Studio Students to engage in Industry experience whether through volunteering or an internship.

Guest students should consult with an advisor from their home school regarding internship requirements, especially internships for credit. Your advisor will be able to assist you in determining the best course of action for engaging in an internship while studying away at the NYC Studio.

Once enrolled in the NYC Studio program, all students will receive current internship opportunities from our office.

After meeting with your advisor, feel free to contact the NYC Studio with additional questions or concerns.

Ms. Hillary M. Stone, Industry Liaison-Internship Director for the Fashion School is also available via email, at hstone1@kent.edu, for further information, recommendations, and resources.
