The San Francisco Bay Area Has It All.

The Bay Area is a hot spot of invention, creativity, activism, and entrepreneurship. At Mills, not only can you intern with the world’s most influential technology and new media companies—Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Apple, Pixar, Netflix, Pandora, and more—but you also have access to internships with global social justice organizations, world-class art museums, socially responsible businesses, international nonprofits, and community action groups.

My internship at Electronic Arts led to my dream job. I never would have ended up here if it weren't for Mills.Azure Bowie-Hankins '07
