VCU Brandcenter Icon VCU Brandcenter


We don't require internships — but you have every chance to land a great one.

Each spring, we receive hundreds of summer intern requests from agencies and companies around the country who know the rigor of our program.

They are not requesting our students because they need someone to make coffee — they know Brandcenter students are ready to dive into the work and make significant contributions.

These are always paid internships at agencies and companies doing some of the industry’s best work.

It’s a chance to apply what you’ve learned during your first year in the real world, make professional connections that will help you throughout your career and potentially get work produced.

We curate and organize the internship opportunities in one place so our students can search by discipline, city or agency/company, then decide where to apply.
