Due to heightened concerns about student health and safety and the need to limit student exposure outside of classes and USAC-sponsored activities, we have decided to not offer in-person internships or service-learning activities during the Spring 2021 semester. Instead, Spring 2021 internships will be offered in a virtual format through USAC’s Global Perspectives Virtual Internship program, even for students attending in-person programs abroad. For more information on dates, costs, and placement options, please see our virtual internship program page.
We hope to resume in-person internships in Summer 2021.
If you have any questions, please contact the USAC internship team at email@example.com.
Internships in Santiago are offered during the summer, semester, and yearlong terms. Internships are optional and included in your program fees. Interns receive up to two credits in the summer or up to three credits in the semester, but no financial compensation. Internships count as part of your credit load. In addition to professional and academic experience, internships are a great way to immerse yourself in the culture, meet locals, and practice your language skills. Students are placed in a Spanish-speaking environment, with high exposure to culture and language. Internships fall into the broad categories of education, museums, design and communication, social work/social welfare, human rights, arts administration, non-profits, the environment, and hospitality.
Students interns will work with local broadcast journalism professionals managing dynamic content. These placements require advanced Spanish profiency.
Student interns will work in the marketing department of local companies and contribute to publication, web, and broadcast advertising.
Examples marked with an asterisk have summer internships available; you'll need to attend both Summer Sessions I & II to participate.
Beginning in Summer 2021, a non-refundable internship placement fee will be required of all students participating in an in-person USAC internship. This fee helps offset the costs of securing quality internship placements and helps provide a range of professional development activities, including an online internship seminar, career workshops, and panel discussions. The fee amount has not been finalized but will be announced in the near future.
Placement is not guaranteed by USAC; rather it will be determined by your application, supporting materials, and an interview with the internship sponsor on site.
