Please review the Quick Start Guide, prior to taking online courses. Note: You will be required to log into Google Drive with your g.uky.edu email address.

Internships

Students must complete 6-credits of internship to graduate, with each credit hour equaling 50 hours of work at an internship site. The Department of Arts Administration Director of Undergraduate Studies supervises the internships and assists students in identifying potential internship sites. The student is then responsible for contacting the individual sites, submitting a Learning Contract, and ultimately obtaining the internship. The Department of Arts Administration has long-standing relationships with many internship sites and the Director of Undergraduate Studies provides ample support to students throughout the process. Additionally, some internship positions are regularly broadcasted on the Arts Administration listserv, an email announcement system accessible to Arts Administration majors. To join the listserv, visit the administrative staff in Room 205 of the Fine Arts building.

In order to register for AAD 499: Internship in Arts Administration, students must complete the three-party internship learning contract.  The contract requires that the student, the internship site supervisor, and the Arts Administration faculty instructor and program director agree to the duties and activities that will be completed during the internship.  This contract must be completed and filed with the Arts Administration Program prior to any work hours being started.

To access the internship learning contract, time sheet and evaluation forms, you will need to log into the Undergraduate Internship Student Resource page on Google Drive. Note: You will be required to log into Google Drive with your g.uky.edu email address.
