School of Visual Art and Design

For Students

Our School of Visual Art and Design students are hard at work making, building, documenting, and dreaming about the next big thing. Below are resources and useful links for School of Visual Art and Design students to support their work and studies. Stay involved, whether it be through university-recognized clubs, internships, or more.

Internships

Our degree programs can prepare you for successful work and careers in many fields. We encourage our students to find internships in an area of interest. The Career Center can help you prepare for an internship, and Handshake can help you find and apply for an internship in the Columbia area.

 
Community

The School of Visual Art and Design fosters a sense of community in the arts. With connections to the Columbia Museum of Art, the Nickelodeon Theater, the Moving Image Research Collections, and interdisciplinary programs at the university, you can gain exposure to new and exciting ideas, programs, and visitors from all fields of practice and study. 

Student Organizations

The purpose of the Art History Club is to promote an interest in all things art and art history. We want to facilitate the discussion of art historical topics, plan community involvement projects, provide research and study help for art history students, invite guest speakers for lectures, and coordinate trips to museums, galleries, and academic conferences.

The club is open to all majors and there are no dues or fees.
