Internship Opportunities

We are currently seeking to fill 3 internship positions for the remainder of 2018. 

About our Internships

Design Division depends on the work of highly-motivated interns to accomplish civic design objectives. In exchange we provide a rewarding educational experience, especially for academic interns receiving college credit (which are unpaid internships).

Our interns are exposed to urban design and planning practices in a municipal urban design studio. Interns are mentored in our design methods and exposed to the political realities and stakeholders of their projects. Tasks may range in complexity from large-scale urban design projects to the day-to-day duties of operating a small design studio. Charleston is a growing and challenging urban environment, so interns will have a rapidly changing urban laboratory as the context of their work.

Interns also receive meaningful projects that will enhance their professional portfolios. Excellent interns will receive a letter of recommendation from the Director of Civic Design.

HOW TO APPLY

Please send a resume attached to a very brief e-mail to the Allen Davis, the Director of Civic Design: davisal@charleston-sc.gov. (Urban Design Production internship applicants must provide work samples.)
