Internship Course


Most companies require you to be earning school credit while you are interning. We provide a low cost way of making that happen. 
$200 flat for 3 units - transferrable to any campus - open to any grade levelincluding post-grad!


​This is a purely online course, available Fall, Spring, & Summer semesters. 
Spring 2023 Registration link will be available below on or after January 4, 2023!​

Course Requirements

  • You must secure your own internship in order to participate in the course.
  • This course is designed for students who need credit or verification of being a student.
  • You are responsible for ensuring (with your counselor / department head) that your units are eligible for transfer to your CSU. Most are, but it is always good to be sure beforehand if the credits are something you need.
  • Students must complete a minimum of 100 hours per semester, which works out to roughly 7 hours a week during the Spring or Fall, more for the Summer. Make sure you schedule enough hours to fulfill this requirement. You can work more than 100 hours, if this is what is required from their internship site or if it is something you want to do.
  • Social Media Participation is required. Follow @CSUEA on TwitterFacebook, & Instagram so you can have first access to resources and opportunities.
  • Please keep in mind that all forms must be completed through Submittable (instructions below) and there is NO iLEARN for this course.

Readings

There will be a few suggested readings and videos about making the most of internships, writing resumés, problem solving at the workplace and preparing for interviews. These readings were chosen with the idea of empowering students as they prepare for the job market, including thinking strategically about ​how to approach it, and develop a thoughtful, organized, and proactive plan for job hunting.

  • Advice from Employers - A PDF full of direct advice from employers like Disney, Sirius XM, NBCUniversal, Endemol Shine, Young Hollywood, and so many more!
  • Hollywood Game Plan - A short book by our Advisory Council Member Carole Kirschner on "How to Land a Job in Film, TV and Digital Entertainment".​​
  • Intern Insider - A short book about how to make the most of your time as an intern in the entertainment field.
