"Learning by doing" is a key strength of SUNY Fredonia's arts administration, and an off-campus internship (preferably full-time, in the summer between or Junior and Senior year (or the year before) can be an ideal introduction to the "real outside" world of arts administration.
A list of suggested internship opportunities and links to searchable databases of available internships is given to the right. Some fo the sites include actual jobs as well. It is up to each student in our program to locate their own internship. While suggestions are provided, we do not guarantee placement, and all internships require the approval of the Arts Administration program coordinator.

Internships are offered under course number AADM 490. The program also has a Practicum Course, AADM 400, which is like an internship, except that the experiential learning takes place on campus, under the guidance of a staff member of Rockefeller Arts Center. Less paperwork is required for AADM, as no formal learning contract is necessary.
