Capital Internships: Applying classroom knowledge to the workplace!

The UCR Capital Internships program provides a variety of opportunities for eligible students from all majors to earn course credit for substantive internships associated with their academic and career goals. Since these programs are academic in nature, the Office of Student Engagement strives to facilitate partnerships that lead to tangible learning opportunities for students and significance for our community partners.

The program is designed to function as an outlet to grow professionally within your career field, but also to enhance academic learning. The educational value is exhibited through research, student learning objectives, professional and academic guidance from a faculty advisor and internship site supervisor, and the opportunity to successfully link theoretical knowledge from a classroom to real-world experiences. Students may participate in summer, fall, winter or spring quarter. Financial aid applies and scholarships available. Students are advised to plan 3-6 months in advance to ensure coursework fits their UCR academic plan. The program is open to all majors. Students do not need to be political science or public policy majors, or interested in law or government relations, to apply.
