"His (student) organizational skills are superior. He is also a very quick learner and was able to take on many tasks we normally don't give to interns. Your program is outstanding!"
— Warner Brothers Television

Once you’ve had the majority of your major courses under your belt, you’ll be ready to tackle an internship at a studio, TV station, talent agency, post house, on-set or in a production office. If you’re looking to find a school with deep relationships that will be a springboard for your career, we’re ready for you!

The School of Cinema and Media Arts provides internships to students to give a “real world” learning experience beyond the university classroom. It allows the students to work in a media related organization that tests their commitment, aptitude, and stamina for work within the entertainment industry. *

* 60 hours of internship is required for each academic credit (three credits required for a total of 180 hours). Includes three on-campus sessions designed to strengthen and expand professional skills.
