Internships for San Sebastián, Spain

The San Sebastián program offers one-credit interships during semester and yearlong terms. The internships are optional. They are  included in your program fees and are counted as part of your academic 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. Working in a non-English speaking environment requires the ability to communicate at an advanced language level.

Past internship placements in San Sebastián have included:

  • Surfriders Foundation
  • Basque Heritage (.com)
  • Cuentacuentos (storytelling to young children)
  • Teaching English pronunciation to children in a theater group
  • San Sebastián Sumario
  • Tutoring for a local NGO


  • Minimum 3.0 GPA
  • Junior standing (at time of internship)
  • Foreign language proficiency (some placements)

A $200 refundable fee is charged and returned upon successful completion of the internship. 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.
