The PAC Internship program provides graduate students in the 3-year M.Arch. program with a unique opportunity to catch up with their future 2-year peers, most of whom enter the program with some architectural office experience.

3-year students in good academic standing are offered the opportunity to be placed in a paid position at a local firm the summer following their first year of graduate school. These architecture related positions build upon the design and course work done in the first year of the program and provide valuable, real world experience. Graduate students contribute to their assigned workplaces in a variety of ways, from marketing graphics and model building to research, while some are also able to utilize knowledge gained in their previous degrees or careers.

Participating firms vary widely, exposing the entire class to a broad range of practice models and specializations.
