There is no better time than your college years to explore the wide range of professional and community experiences available to you. By completing an academic internship or service-learning experience in a business, government, or a nonprofit organization, you gain working skills, build a network of professional contacts, and test classroom theories in a real world setting. The Center for Internships & Community Engagement and CSUF's academic internship and service-learning courses offer you the opportunity to formally integrate academic studies with practical work experience prior to completing your degree.
Some of our services to you include:
- Provide orientations on academic internship and service-learning opportunities, departmental guidelines, and the registration process.
- Develop sites and post academic internships and service-learning positions that offer appropriate learning experiences, a professional environment, academic relevance, and appropriate supervision.
- Ensure that all academic internship and service-learning opportunities conform to established risk management guidelines for meaningful, high quality, and safe experiences.
