Trying to land your ideal job after graduation?
The career center at the University of Washington offers a wide range of resources that can further enable and empower you to create the right path toward your ideal career. Services include resume writing, personality tests, interviewing skills, internship information, major exploration, job search strategies, reducing test anxiety, and information on graduate schools.
Interested in learning on the job?
Participating in internships during your undergraduate education is an excellent way to gain experience, build a resume, and to find the job responsibilities and working environments that are going to be the right fit. If you have an off-campus opportunity with a local theater, tv station, film company, or radio station and are interested in receiving internship credit, please contact the Drama Adviser so that the internship opportunity can be evaluated for Drama 493 (Supervised Internship) credit. Part of receiving credit for Drama 493 includes completing an assigned culminating paper or project. Students can receive up to 6 credits of Drama 493 which can apply toward the 10 required credits of Drama electives.
Students can also receive credit toward graduation for non-theater related internship experiences. If you are interested in other internship opportunities, you can receive up to 6 credits for your internship and completed academic projects by registering for General Studies 350. General Studies 350 does not count for any Area of Knowledge or for requirements in the major but can count toward the 180 credits needed for graduation. Internship opportunities are sent out through the BA listserv and students are also encouraged to investigate and research options at local Seattle theaters.
