At the College of Arts & Letters (CAL), we believe in the power of real-world experience and hands-on learning. Internships and experiential learning are important parts of undergraduate education, which elevate those that gain these experiences to the top of the job market. The Marketing & Communications office hires students to work in the Content Studio, where they collaborate on news stories, social media communications, visual and graphic design, and user experience design.
