The Program strongly encourages AADS majors and minors to become interns. 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. Morrissette, 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.
See below for current opportunities or contact the Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options and to enroll in the course.
