VCU Brandcenter

Internships

Real clients. Real work.
A taste of the agency and client-side
world before graduating.

Most Brandcenter students intern for 8-10 weeks during the summer between their first and second years. While internships
are not required by the program, each Spring the VCU Brandcenter receives hundreds of intern requests from agencies and companies
around the country, which are posted internally for our students. They are almost always paid internships, but that's not the best part.
The students also get a shot at getting their work produced.

Brandcenter students intern at agencies and companies that are doing some of the best work out there. Below is the list of where the
Class of 2017 is interning this summer. Take a look at this feature on Natasha Sligh (XD, 2017), the first Brandcenter experience design student
to intern at Apple.
