Internships for Faculty

Important Announcement

Due to current COVID-19 Federal, State and County restrictions, we strongly recommend that students search for and chose virtual internships, when at all possible. If an in-person internship is necessary to complete required hours, CSUSM students may participate in on-site internships activities in the State of California provided the student and the organization follow current Federal, State, and County public health guidelines effective May 19, 2020. Organizations will be required to submit evidence they are  in compliance with public health guidelines. If have any questions, please contact the Career Center.

Our Goals

  • Provide robust administrative and operational support for the faculty and students engaged in the high-impact practice of for-credit, academic internships; and
  • Assist with sustaining existing and developing new university-community partnerships related to for-credit internships.
