Internship Site Information
Thank you for your interest in our program and for providing a learning opportunity for our students! For additional information regarding our program, please refer to our FAQs.
For THEATRE ARTS oriented internship opportunities, please contact Amy Glazer (Amy.Glazer@sjsu.edu).
The Career Center advertises internships and jobs and also holds job/internship fairs on campus several times a year (sponsorships or representation at these fairs are available). To be added to a California-wide listing of jobs or internships, register your opportunities online at www.csumediainterns.com.
Once a student is placed with your organization, the RTVF Internship Contract must be completed to establish the student assignment with the site. Students must not begin work before submitting a contract with required signatures from the internship site, SJSU faculty and the student.
After the site-university relationship is legally established (paperwork is completed), the site is responsible for three tasks:
- Provide relevant work experience for the student intern.
- Supervise student's work at the internship site.
- Evaluate the student upon completion of the internship.
A site supervisor may use a Site Evaluation form (provided by the student) to evaluate the intern, or may submit a personal letter of evaluation, if preferred. Please note that there is a deadline for submitting the site evaluation; the intern will not receive credit for the course without a Site Evaluation.
Interns must be registered for TA 298 (for Theatre students) or RTVF 198 (Radio-Television-Film students) while they are doing the internship. Retroactive credit is not allowed, according to department and university policy.
