Interning students will be exposed to challenging, professional opportunities while working in the offices of leading architectural, interior, and landscape design firms. They will assist preservation planners in both the Town of Palm Beach and the City of West Palm Beach with documentation of historic properties and participate in current urban planning and design projects.
