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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Internships in Chiang Mai are offered during the summer, semester and yearlong terms. Those interested in doing a summer internship must attend both summer sessions. Summer internships are limited and only one-credit.
Internships are optional and included in your program fees. They range from 1-3 credits and are counted as part of your academic credit load, in addition to the minimum credit requirement. 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.
*Placement with a particular internship provider is not guaranteed.
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.
