Internships happen at the end of a student's Junior or during their Senior year. Students work a day a week or more in placements in Chicago or the suburbs. This experience connects the content and studio practices on campus to the working world.

It is the final way that Trinity's Art Studio and Art Education programs connect personal instruction to Chicago's vibrant professional arts and design scenes. Here professionally active faculty members are often able to use professional networks to connect students internships that help students make connections to the professional networks that help students succed after graduation.
