Internship Program

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. 

Starting Fall 2014, to enroll in a CTVA internship course, CTVA 494C (3 units) or CTVA 494F (6 units), a CTVA undergraduate student:

  • Must be a senior in Fall 2014 (have 90+ units)

  • Must have completed the required lower division CTVA major courses and be in a CTVA major area of emphasis.

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.
