College of Communication Arts & Sciences Student Field Experience Fund

ComArtSci students have the option to participate in a field experience class to explore working and living in major metropolitan cities. We offer classes in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Faculty take about 25 students for a one week industry tour and work with alumni and friends in each city to set up between 2 and 4 company visits each day. The students visit potential employers to hear about possible careers, the professional environment, and what it’s like to live and work in the city. These experiences give students the invaluable confidence and understanding required to move to the area upon graduation.

“I learned about different kinds of positions that are available in the entertainment industry. I learned how I can use my skills and experience from my advertising degree in different areas.”

Oftentimes students wishing to make the trip are unable to do so because of financial limitations. 

Give to Communication Arts & Sciences and Help Send 5 Students on Field Experience Classes

The intent of the class is to give students a glimpse of the “real world” including potential jobs and careers in the city and also the lifestyle available.
