Because some experiences are impossible to gain in the traditional classroom setting, we offer students various internship opportunities with both local and national companies and organizations. By participating in an internship, students gain relevant career-related experiences that reinforce what they have learned in the classroom and make them more marketable after graduation. Internships are offered during the fall and spring semesters and during the summer.

Many internship opportunities are posted on Employola. Students should register with Employola right away to get an idea of what is available and where they might like to work. Sometimes a student finds an internship on his or her own. If the company is in the greater New Orleans area, the employer must register with Employola. If the internship is not local, students should contact the chair of their department. All internships must be approved in advance. 

Below is a list of companies where College of Music and Fine Arts students have completed internships in recent years:

Louisiana State Theater Festival

Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra

New Orleans Opera Association

New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

New Orleans Museum of Art
