Academic Program

Internship with AADS

The Program strongly encourages AADS majors and minors to become interns. For the Spring 2017 internship, students will have the opportunity to work with AADS main office for event planning, networking, promotion and learning design related techniques for marketing. Interested students will need to complete the prerequisite courses, inquire directly with Dr. Glenn, take part in an interview, and a candidate will be decided afterwards. These experiences allow students to expand their academic knowledge by engaging in practical experience.

Contact the Program Director, Dr. Cerise Glenn, to discuss options and to enroll in the course.
