Many departments in the College of Humanities, Arts, Behavioral and Social Sciences offer credit-bearing Internship Courses. Some of these courses are open to non-majors, while others are structured as capstone courses or other required/restricted courses open only to students in those majors.
Currently, Visual and Performing Arts/Arts and Technology, Communication/Mass Media, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Global Studies and History all list internship courses in their curriculum. If you are a student in a major or department not offering an internship course and seek information about alternatives, please contact email@example.com.
Many local employers post paid internship opportunities (along with part time and full time employment opportunities) on CSUSM’s CougarJOBS, a resource maintained by the Career Center. There are also other special resources at the career center like “Going Global,” a database for international opportunities.
Unpaid internships for academic credit and volunteer positions are handled by the Office of Internships: 760-750-7001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other opportunities of interest to CHABSS students include the media internships through the CSU Entertainment Industry Initiative.
