Student internships provide opportunities for students to gain experience in their field, determine if they have an interest in a particular career, or to earn academic credit through course enrollment. 
An internship is a short-term, supervised professional training or work experience designed to allow students to apply acquired skills and knowledge to practical situations. An internship is usually related to a students major field of study. Internships, depending on if a student is taking it during the Fall, Spring, or Summer semester, may be part-time or full-time with the internship typically lasting between six to twelve weeks. An internship may be either paid or unpaid, on- or off-campus. 
For additional information about internships, please visit or email your department secretary to receive an internship packet.

Helpful Hints for Completing Internship Packet

·  Internships must be conducted within the same semester of course enrollment.

·  Enrollment in an internship is part of a students academic load. The standard academic load for undergraduate students is 12-18 units. The maximum course load  is 18 units. 

·  All internships must have a syllabus to guide the learning and provide the student with an understanding of the academic expectations. If a syllabus is not attached to a submitted  registration packet, the internship packet will be returned to the student.

·  The syllabus should indicate the job description, internship goals, assignments, meeting schedule and grading elements. Incomplete syllabi will not be approved and will be returned to the instructor.
