Students are required to have completed six units in the Radio and Television department before they are eligible for an internship. The internships must be of semester length and timed to match a Fall, Spring, or Summer semester. The Summer Session can be ten weeks for the internship.
Students must enroll in RTVC 270 Work Experience (2-4 units) plus additional class(es) in order to carry a total of seven units during Fall or Spring or four units during the Summer (including the internship units). The internship (RTVC 270) can be from two to four units depending on how many hours the student is at the business (8 hrs/wk = 2 units; 12 hrs/wk = 3 units; 15+ hrs/wk = 4 units). Students should prepare for the internship session by applying to the business for an interview at the beginning of the preceding semester, and by contacting Laura Castañeda for the paperwork.
