The Arts and Technology Track of the School of Arts has a steady stream of internships we can offer to our students. We have student interns in video production, television, graphic design, web development, high school teaching (technology), media arts and activism, feature film production, and recording technologies. Most of these students become full time employees at these companies upon graduation.
Our majors have gone on to graduate school, most recently UCSD, UCLA and Vermont College in video and media arts. Many of our students continue as artists after they graduate. They also teach undergraduate courses, and work in the industry once they have graduated. We have students working as design directors, web systems developers, video producers, teachers in media arts programs in high schools, musicians and recording technicians. Internships have prepared our student for positions in Graphic Design, which in San Diego County, the new job growth rate is 24.3%, which is much faster than the county-wide average of 15.3% (2004 Occupational Outlook Report, San Diego Workforce Partnership).
Our alumni also work in technical theater positions at Legoland and other commercial institutions of this type. There is substantial regional demand for graduates from our program, and the Arts and Technology track prepares them for work.
