Beyond Dartmouth: Off-Term Internships, Fellowships, and Graduate Programs

This page is a resource for Dartmouth students of theater internships, graduate programs and fellowships with which our department has a strong track record. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and students should consult with our faculty for more information.

In addition, students can find other arts related career development and employment opportunities through the Center for Professional Development.

 

Internships

Thanks to the college’s unique D-Plan, our students are able to pursue internships during their off-terms. Theater students are encouraged to take advantage of our unique partnerships and connections to Northern Stage and New York Theatre Workshop. The department also benefits from its close relationship with the New London Barn Playhouse, a professional summer stock theater in New London, NH, where Dartmouth students can be found onstage and behind the scenes in a variety of roles.
