SMU Guildhall: Special Programs and Services

Career Development

SMU Guildhall provides its students with the resources and professional environment they need to achieve their career goals. While attending the program, students receive class instruction from industry-experienced faculty on the preparation of résumés and cover letters, interview techniques, online portfolio creation, and negotiation.

The Guildhall further enhances a student’s career outlook by hosting a career event prior to graduation. Studios are invited to attend and conduct interviews with graduating students. Portfolio review sessions are scheduled throughout the year for industry experts to meet with students and provide feedback sessions on the student’s online portfolio. Graduating students may also attend industry conferences with events and networking opportunities.

Summer Youth Program

The Guildhall Academy, a summer camp for children in middle and high school, provides youth with an interactive forum to express their individuality while learning to make a video game. During the two-week session, students learn to add the discipline of art to their use of science, technology, engineering and math to develop a game.
