UFPA Internships

An internship with University of Florida Performing Arts is a wonderful opportunity to learn, network and gain real-life work experience. Each semester, interns have the opportunity to work in the various departments of UFPA, from administration to development, marketing to operations. The dynamic and team-oriented nature of UFPA allows interns to work in a variety of different areas, providing a broad and valuable experience.

UFPA internships are semester or year-long commitments. You will be expected to commit 10-15 hours per week. Work hours are flexible and agreed upon with your supervisor at the start of your internship.
