Our internships do not have specific major or degree requirements, but backgrounds and interests in music, artistic operations/ administration, donor relations, event management or marketing are a plus. » What you’ll gain These internships provide opportunities for students to gain experience in their chosen field, determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, and even gain school credit.
