Field Trips and Speakers


You’ll take 20 field trips while you’re here.

No sittin’ around on campus. Too many opportunities to ‘glad hand’ Creative Directors. Make contacts. See professional work. Learn firsthand about the industry. And get internships and jobs with advertising agencies, design studios, illustrators, corporations, photographers, in-house art departments, printers, web design companies, and modeling+animation companies.
