Internships at CIA 

Internships fuel the career path of many of our graduates—over 80% of CIA students do one or more internships before they graduate!

The Cleveland Institute of Art defines an internship as a work related learning experience that provides students or recent graduates an opportunity to gain important knowledge and skills in a particular career field. Internships can:

  • Provide course-credit or be non-credit-bearing
  • Be paid or unpaid
  • Be part-time or full-time
  • Be during the summer or the academic year
