Because careers in media, visual communication, film & video production, electronic graphics, and related fields are burgeoning, students are increasingly interested in developing preparedness in these areas. Employers seek graduates who are visually literate, who have a sophisticated understanding of the media as a cultural and aesthetic force, and who have meaningful exposure to the cutting edge technologies of film, video, and electronic image-making. This is why internships (FVS 490 "Cooperative Education") are an integral part of the FVS major and why so many of our students are gaining valuable "real-world" experience prior to graduating out into the workforce.
Students interested in completing an internship in Film must meet with Jon Ward or Liahna Armstrong to complete the CWU Learning Agreement and discuss requirements.
