An internship is an opportunity for students to work in their chosen profession while attending school in order to gain valuable knowledge and work experience.



Most often, interns are not paid for the work they do monetarily, but are instead rewarded by the sharing of knowledge, ideas, opportunities for their portfolio, networks and possibly a permanent job offer if the intern takes advantage of the opportunity to be a valuable employee.
Students in the Valencia Graphics Department are required to take an internship. Students cannot take an internship until they have passed GRA2182C Advanced Graphic Design II OR GRA2143 Advanced Web Page Design with a C or higher. Students probably won’t qualify for a Graphics Internship until their final two semesters enrolled.

You will not be able to register for an internship without following the steps outlined on our blog:

Registering for an internship must occur the semester PRIOR to when you want to be an Intern. (Graphic’s Internship Applicants must be currently enrolled in or have successfully completed GRA 2182C Advanced Graphic Design II OR GRA 2143C Advanced Web Page Design before they can do an Internship).

What steps do I need to take to be registered for GRA 2942C Internship in Graphics?

  2. WATCH THE MANDATORY GRAPHICS INTERNSHIP ORIENTATION. The presentation is located in the East Campus (multimedia) Server in the Teacher Transfer volume in a folder called “Internship”. You may also download this file onto your computer by downloading it from my virtual “Drop Box” BY CLICKING HEREYou MUST view this presentation in Adobe Acrobat Reader in order for the videos to work! Feel free to take the presentation home with you for viewing, just keep in mind it is a very large file and will require you have adequate disk space for storage.

  3. Print out all of the paperwork requested in the Orientation and submit it by the deadline (DO NOT take your paperwork to the Internship Office! Follow the Orientation instructions for where to drop off your paperwork!) Not following instructions makes it easy for us to know you haven’t watched the orientation.
  4. Once your Faculty Internship Supervisor (the Graphic’s Instructor assigned to internships) has everyone’s paperwork, he/she will submit everyone’s paperwork to the Internship Office. Once that happens, the Internship Office will process your paperwork and register you for GRA 2942C Internship in Graphics.
