SAIC Co-op Internships

Through the SAIC Co-op Internship Program, degree-seeking sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students can earn course credit while gaining valuable real-world experience.

Co-op is a class, and there are several requirements to fulfill in order to earn credit. Tuition is charged, and students receive studio or general elective credit based on hours completed.

With more than 500 Co-op internships available every semester, our program encompasses a variety of disciplines unique to artists' interests.
