Entertainment internships are a useful starting point for gaining employment in the industry and are a critical way of developing personal contacts, necessary interpersonal skills, and insights into the inner workings of “the business.”

You can earn 1 credit for an internship per academic term that you are engaged in the internship. You must be doing the internship during the academic term in which you receive credit for the internship. You may not be paid for the internship if you are earning academic credit.

You may earn credit for an internship that takes place during the summer. Regular summer session registration deadlines must be followed. We encourage students interested in internships to consider applying for the summers following their sophomore and junior years.

To find an internship, make an appointment to speak with Linda Delibero or visit Handshake. If you have or know of an internship you would like to have posted, please email Melissa Capello.
