Internships

Interns Needed!

Various commercial and non-profit organizations in the Greater Portland area are interested in hosting interns for the coming semester.You can earn academic credit and gain valuable real-world work experience.

These are real-world opportunities to expand your knowledge base, develop new skills, and benefit from a close mentoring relationship with a working professional. A successful internship may be the best bridge possible for transitioning between classroom and career.

The Cinema Studies Minor

Cinema Film Studies Still

The Cinema Studies minor offers students a multidimensional understanding of film as form of art, product of industry, and mode of communication. The program can serve as a base of knowledge for students intending to enter careers in the media, as a foundation for further study, and/or as the opportunity to gain deeper insight into one of the most culturally significant media of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.  For more information, contact Matthew Killmeier.
