Field Studies for Majors
Film 197B | CCN: 31798
Film Majors in good standing who have a 3.0 GPA, and have completed 60 units of credit can create an external professional internship that relates to their film and media studies for course credit. Internships must be approved by the department based upon their relevance to the student’s academic training in film and media studies. Students will meet with the faculty internship advisor periodically through out the semester, and must write a 5-8 page paper evaluating the outcome of the internship and relating what they learned to their studies. Only 4-units of internship units may be counted towards the 32 upper-division unit requirement for the Film major.
To apply, students must fill out an Internship Agreement from the undergraduate office, giving details of the internship and have a written invitation from the internship supervisor that outlines the activities and jobs the intern will be asked to perform and write a final evaluation of the intern’s performance at the end of the internship. The internship will be a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 20 hours per week.
Students can research their internships based on their interests or check out the Film & Media Department’s internship site, which periodically lists available internships in approved film and media related organizations and companies.
