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 San Ramón are offered during the summer (limited), semester and yearlong terms. Internships are optional and included in your program fees. They range from 1-3 credits and are counted as part of your credit load. Interns earn credit, but no financial compensation. 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. You will be working in a non-English speaking environment and must be able to communicate at an advanced level (Track III). Upon request USAC will identify options for English speaking internships.
San Ramón offers many possibilities for internships at the local hospital in medicine, hospital administration and maintenance, microbiology, and pharmacy. At the university there are many options like the day care center, Scientific High School, the University Museum and research assistance.
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.
