About the Graphic Design Internships
CCA's Graphic Design Program offers its undergraduates unique opportunities to intern with leading Bay Area graphic design companies as well as related designers.
Interning is an invaluable experience that not only affords you the chance to work on innovative real-world projects outside the college but also heightens the relevance of your portfolio, giving you a leading-edge advantage when applying to graduate programs or entering the workforce.
