Santa Fe, NM – Dec. 7, 2015 – This summer Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD) and Dream Careers, a global leader in placement-based academic and experiential education programs, are collaborating to expand the number of academic internship programs available to SFUAD students in 11 of the most competitive cities worldwide. The eight-week customized summer internship program spans cities from L.A. to New York, and London to Hong Kong. Dream Careers has connections with more than 3,000 employers in 30 industries — including film, music, photography, television, casting/talent, marketing and advertising — and has previously placed students with internships at companies such as Universal, Condé Nast, Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and HBO. The university will be offering select scholarships to assist SFUAD students in pursuing an internship experience through the program.

“We have a responsibility to our students to elevate their exposure to and interaction with industry professionals, and are continually looking to increase our commitment to quality education and student success,” said Debra Tervala, Interim Provost at SFUAD. “Internships are critical in a students’ career development, and we are proud to partner with Dream Careers as they can offer our students the best internships in competitive cities globally.”

Dream Careers has been the global leader in academic internship programs for over 15 years, offering structured internship programs in Paris, Barcelona, Hong Kong, London, as well as cities throughout the United States including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C. and Miami.

Students accepted into the Dream Careers program will be guaranteed an internship, along with housing in their host city, on-site support staff to help acquaint them with their host city, transportation to and from the internship, and support obtaining their visas. Participating students will also have the opportunity to attend career development seminars and workshops that help elevate their networking and interviewing skills, offer interview preparation, professional resume enhancement and job search tips, and connect them with other program alumni and industry professionals during special mixer events.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with such an innovative and committed institution as Santa Fe University of Art and Design,” said Scott Bergner, Director at Dream Careers. “They have some of the most talented art and design students in the world, and it is inspiring to see a university come together to provide additional resources to push their students to achieve success, grow as professionals, and compete for the best jobs after graduation. Let’s just say the future looks very bright for all SFUAD students.”
