Will you need or want academic credit for your internship experience?

Most students are more interested in the experience, but some want the chance to combine what they're learning in the classroom with the experience. Most departments require students to have upper-class standing before they are eligible to receive academic credit for an internship experience. Note that many UCSB departments do not offer academic credit for internships. Review the "Earning Academic Credit" page for more infomation.

How much time can you spend at your internship?

Programs can be part-time for one quarter, full-time for summer, or year round part-time or full-time commitments. Usually the competition for certain government, national or international opportunities is less during the school year versus the summer when the majority of people look. Most students find the longer they stay with one employer the more responsibility and training they will receive.

When Do You Want To Do Your Internship?

Carefully plan the quarter or summer in which you want to begin your first internship experience. Will you have sufficient time to devote to a volunteer or internship experience? How much flexibility will you need to handle your commitments in and outside of class? Freshman and Sophomores usually begin with volunteer, part-time jobs, or on-campus experiences to get the flavor of the type of responsibilities and skills they would like to use in their internship later on.
