About The Evergreen Multimedia Arts Internship Program
The Evergreen Multimedia Arts Internship program houses a series of in-program internships. The program has learning opportunities in photography and electronic media (audio, video and production).
All internships are advanced media programs that encourage self-starting and inspired students to pursue their goals and passions through hands-on work in a highly collaborative and professional multimedia environment. Under the guidance of staff supervisors, the program coordinator, the media director and the faculty sponsor, interns develop the necessary skills to thrive in a post-college environment, including creative collaboration, effective communication, emotionally intelligent leadership and an interdisciplinary approach to multimedia.
The program is a full academic year commitment from fall through spring quarter. Students selected for the program will receive a scholarship covering the total cost of their annual tuition and lab fees which will be allocated quarterly, along with gear packages that include industry standard equipment for use over the duration of the internship.
