At the IAS, students have opportunities to interact with internationally acclaimed artists and projects, influential scholars, and innovative exhibitions. Students also gain valuable pre-professional experience as graduate and undergraduate interns at the IAS, assisting with curatorial projects, education programs, public events, public relations, and outreach. 

With a range of graduate student educational fellowships and curatorial fellowships, as well as undergraduate student internship opportunities, the IAS is an intergral part of teaching and learning at UC Santa Cruz.
