Academic Internship Program
Internships are typically hort-term, voluntary or paid, learning experiences. The most popular type of internship is part-time, 10 to 20 hours per week during the academic year. This schedule allows students to continue with their course work during the internship. Summer is a preferred period for full-time (40 hours/week) internships.
Students enrolled at UCR may earn academic credit for their internships, or they may undertake them solely for professional development.
