The goal of the CTVA Internship Program is to instill in students the knowledge, expertise, and creative skills that will allow them to pursue their goals in digital media, cinema, television, screenwriting, management and radio.   The CTVA Internship Program promotes the critical, analytical, creative, ethical, and conceptual thinking that will enrich the students’ professional career paths.

Many internships are non-paid positions although virtually all the major studios, networks and production companies offer paid internships. 

To be qualified for a CTVA internship in Spring 2016 [CTVA 494C (3 units) or CTVA 494F (6 units)] a CTVA undergraduate student:

  • Must be a senior in Spring 2016 (have 90+ units)
  •  Must be in good academic standing.
  • Must have completed the required lower division CTVA major courses and
  • Must be in a CTVA major area of emphasis.

The internship course for CTVA graduate students is CTVA 694C (3 units). 
Most internships are designed for three units (135 hours of work minimum). 
A six unit internship requires virtually full-time work for a minimum of 270 hours for the semester.
A student may take a maximum of six CTVA internship units for credit.

If you took a course at another college that is the equivalent of a CTVA lower-division core course, and if that course taken elsewhere is not recognized by SOLAR as the prerequisite for an upper-division CTVA course that you are eligible to take next semester, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Send an e-mail to Type “SPRING REGISTRATION” in the subject line.
  2. State your FULL NAME, STUDENT ID NUMBER, and the OPTION you are in.

The University now requires you to take the Upper Division Writing Proficiency Exam in the semester in which you attempt your 75th unit. If you do not, the University will place a hard hold on your records, blocking your ability to register for any courses, CTVA or otherwise, until you attempt the exam. You need not pass on the first attempt, but you must make the attempt. Please click on the following link for information and to make an appointment: /undergraduate-studies/UDWPE
