We encourage students to find summer internships or employment in theatre. The department subscribes to ArtSearch, the main source of employment advertising in the arts.
In addition, the local community theatre company, Union Street Players, as well as local Des Moines theaters have several casting and crew opportunities over the summer.
Central College Campus has summer activities as well including summer classes, summer work opportunities and paid summer research assistantships (https://news.central.edu/2013/06/03/a-research-campus) funded by the Arthur J. Bosch Endowment for Student Research. For the first time the Theatre Department will be participating in the summer research program focusing on sustainability in theatre and how our production affect local wildlife.
