Internship Overview

Graphic Communications students at Clemson University are required to complete two full-time (40 hours/week) paid internships, typically in their sophomore and junior years, to receive their degrees. The internship program is a win-win for both the students and the companies that they work for. Employers invest in their own future as they preview upcoming talent and contribute to the development of prospective employees, while students explore various career paths while gaining valuable job experience.

Employers may offer competitive hourly rates, stipends, housing and other benefits to attract the best and brightest students. Students are encouraged to work in different geographic locations, process areas and segments of the industry to gain broad experience.
