Graphic Design Major Interns in Prague

“I’m working as a graphic design intern at Passion Communications, which is an advertising firm located here in Prague. They do various work in the advertising field for clients such as Subway, Porsche, Hard Rock Cafe, and many others. It's been a very eye opening experience so far! The work is very demanding but fun at the same time. It's also been interesting trying to adapt to working in an office with people who don't speak English as their first language. My internship is eight weeks long, and I'll be done with it before I head back to SHU to prepare for volleyball season! Since I've been here I've gotten to travel to Vienna, Austria and I'm going to be going to Berlin, Germany and Krakow, Poland before I leave which I'm really looking forward to. I love Prague and I'm so glad I'm lucky enough to get to spend the summer here!”

Art With Diverse Groups

In early 2013, Seton Hill’s art therapy course, Art With Diverse Groups, collaborated with the Westmoreland County BHDS Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Awareness Committee and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art to facilitate a creative arts group for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

The photo above shows some of the art created in the class. The photographer, Nicole Linsmeier, is a Seton Hill student who participated in this course.

As an art major at Seton Hill, you will participate in an apprenticeship or fieldwork experience. We believe in preparing students in class as well as in studio practice to transition them into an art career.  This ‘real life’ experience is invaluable; it builds confidence, provides professional experience and builds a professional networking system. Our graduates are ready to launch into a career and/or graduate school upon completion of our undergraduate art programs.

Below is a sampling of places where Seton Hill art students have been placed:

  • WMAA (Westmoreland Museum of American Art)
  • The Warhol
  • Carnegie Museum of Art
