All undergraduate students in the School of Visual Communication Design are required to complete a three-credit-hour internship before graduation.

Most of our students find paid design, photo and illustration internship positions with businesses, non-profit organizations, educational institutions and government entities. Over the last 30 years, the school has forged relationships with prominent businesses both in Ohio and around the country. Many internships are available on the Kent State campus, locally in Kent, Ravenna, Akron, Youngstown, Cleveland and other Ohio cities as well as other cities including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Birmingham.

If you have additional questions about our internship program, please email the School of VCD Internship Coordinator at
