For-credit internships

The Ink Shop arranges unpaid, for-credit internships with a hosting college or university, for 1 – 3 credits, depending on the student’s interest. A faculty member must act as a sponsor and sign the necessary paperwork. The Ink Shop will discuss with the student the specific tasks he/she will be doing during the internship. The Ink Shop will arrange with the student a set schedule of hours per week he/she will intern, and progress reports are made once or twice during the duration of the internship.

For non-credit internships

The Ink Shop encourages students to also intern as unpaid volunteers for a negotiated amount of time. The Ink Shop expects a regular commitment on the part of the student, setting a weekly schedule with our staff.
