At Clarke, learning occurs both in the classroom and outside campus. Clarke art students are encouraged, and in some areas, required to complete an internship to complement their academic work as a way to help prepare them for a professional career in the arts. In the recent past, graphic design, studio art and art history students have completed valuable semester-long internships in Dubuque and bigger metro areas:
