A Powerful Collaborative Network
Professional internships give SAIC graduates the experience to build their resumes, and prepare them for preservation practice after graduation. Our grads are positioned throughout the country and abroad, in positions of authority within a variety of preservation-related non-profit organizations, advocacy groups, governmental agencies, museums, architecture and interior design firms, historic sites, and as independent preservation consultants and researchers.
