CU’s Department of Communication Arts Holds Intern/Employer Day
Chowan University’s Department of Communication Arts held its annual Intern/Employer Day on March 19. This event is an annual career fair designed to put talented communication arts students together with recruiters seeking to fill internships and entry-level positions.
Tom Brennan, Chair, Department of Communication Arts, says, “The ultimate goal for any of our graduates is employment in their field. During today's Intern/Employer Day, over one hundred interviews will be conducted with ten employers from across the Carolinas. The value of a graphic communications degree will come alive today as job offers and internships are secured.”
The Department of Communication Arts produces students that are aesthetically, theoretically, and technologically trained in graphic design, interactive design, print technology, packaging design, and/or studio art. By combining technological resources and faculty expertise, the department strives to develop students’ creative ideas, artistic ability, self-expression, and professional skills as they study video, digital design, print design, drawing, digital imaging, packaging, web design, photography, painting, ceramics, mixed media, etc., at the intersection of art and technology. Whether using “centuries-old methods or by pushing the boundaries of digital creativity,” the department produces unique and confident graduates with the skills that contemporary print technology, design, and the arts demand.
“It’s a great day for our students in Communication Arts. Students rising to the junior level are eligible for paid internships while our graduating seniors are interviewing for their first jobs in the printing industry,” says Christina Rupsch, Dean, School of Fine and Applied Arts.
