Internships

The Film & Media Internship program is designed to give advanced film majors exposure to the workings of professional and non-profit media companies. Students can locate and design their own external internships with such organizations based on their academic or professional interests. The Film & Media Department also provides periodically updated listings of possible internships with approved film and media related organizations and companies. See listing below.

To be eligible to do an external professional internship that relates to their film and media studies for course credit, you must be a film major in good standing with a 3.0 GPA, and have completed 60 units of credit. Internships must be approved by the department based upon their relevance to the student’s academic training in Film & 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, relating what they learned to their studies. Only 4-units of internship units may be counted towards the 28 upper-division unit requirement for the Film & Media major.

To apply, students must fill out an Internship Agreement from the undergraduate office, and meet with faculty internship advisor. Students must also have a written invitation from the external internship supervisor that outlines the activities and jobs they 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.

Descriptions of Film 197A, Film 197B and Film 197C can be found in Undergraduate Courses.
