The special co-curricular opportunities at Elmhurst will introduce you to a wealth of career possibilities—and help you prepare to meet the challenges ahead. For example:
Internships provide valuable practical experience in professional situations. Students have recently completed internships at Information Station in Chicago, MWD Photography in Elmhurst, and a number of other area businesses and organizations.
Art education students teach in two different school environments before graduation—guaranteeing a wide exposure to the challenges of teaching different age groups.
Our faculty are prominent members of one of the largest art communities in the nation. That means valuable connections for you—long before you graduate.
January Term gives you the flexibility to pursue special courses of study, including travel experiences or exploring non- Western traditions of the Chicago art scene. Recent January Term special topics have included bronze pouring, monotype printmaking, concrete sculpture and screen printing.
