Real-World Industry Experience


Graduates of GA’s full-time Immersive programs are then eligible to join a technical internship at Adobe’s San Francisco, Austin, or New York City office.

During this three- to six-month tenure, interns get hands-on job experience, ongoing feedback, mentorship, and peer support. Top performers will also have the opportunity to be considered for a full-time position.

"Receiving my WDI* certificate of completion made every all-nighter and the ups and downs of learning a new high-tech skill well worth the effort. When the lightbulb went off in my head, I felt empowered, and I have Adobe Digital Academy and GA to thank!"

Ameer Brown, Web Development Immersive (WDI) and Adobe Digital Academy graduate
