That’s why the Straz Center is proud to provide internships to qualified college students who want hands-on experience within their fields of study. Straz interns get professional experience, mentoring and serious responsibilities in their work load and workplace expectations. Our goal is to offer a well-rounded experience that gives our interns skills and knowledge that will directly impact their desireability for a company or organization in their field.

•    Human Resources
•    Information Technology
•    Marketing/Public Relations
•    Music
