Internship / In-Training
Internships and in-training positions are a great way to make
contacts in the industry and to put your classroom skills into
practice. Besides the amazing opportunities afforded students in
the Richard M. Fairbanks Center for Communication and Technology,
the Creative Media
& Entertainment Program has established numerous
professional relationships in Central Indiana and beyond.
All CCOM students are encouraged to complete an internship or
in-training during their studies at Butler.
