A Music Industry Internship/Field Experience is required for all students enrolled in the Music Industry Bachelor of Arts degree program at the SUNY Oneonta.
Music Industry internships may be served at an off-campus location in a professional field of the student's choice within the United States or abroad.
Interns work under the direct supervision of a designated employee of the host institution to gain professional experience. All interns will be assigned an internship faculty supervisor who will determine the student's grade for the internship course experience. Internships receive a grade P (Pass) or F (Fail).
Contact the Music Department Internship Coordinator for advisement on internship opportunities or to get approval for the internship position and duties.
