Internships are an important and life-changing component of a holistic educational experience. The Digital Media & Design program is committed to the value of internships and encourages students to pursue internships  throughout their career at UConn. In fulfillment of this commitment, we seek out corporate relationships to provide paid internships for interested students during the academic year and/or the summer. The goal of these internships is to place students in fast-paced, dynamic corporate environments to experience being part of a company’s team. Firms have the opportunity to meet and “try-out” students to whom they may make future job offers. This is clearly a win-win scenario for all involved and sets the DMD program at UConn apart from others.

DMD Students Selected for Valuable Summer 2017 Internships

UConn DMD students have been busy gaining experience and crafting their digital media skills in real world experiences. Our congratulations to all our students who have participated or are currently participating in an internship.
