LA Department of Arts & Culture: Applications for 2023 Summer Internships will open in Spring!

For the past two years, the Department of Arts and Culture internships have been remote, and have extended beyond summer. This coming summer, the hope is to return to in-person or hybrid positions, taking place in the summer over 10 weeks. The paid positions were paid $6000.00 for 400 hrs. of work over 10 weeks, give or take. The positions will be across a broad spectrum of cultural and arts organizations including Theater companies, in areas of education, community outreach, production, fund-raising, etc. 



There are many ways to enhance your training as a Theater student at Occidental College, including the Undergraduate Summer Research and Study Abroad. You can also deepen your experience and make connections for your post-Oxy career through summer internships. You may elect to enroll in INT100 (0-units) or INT200 (2-units and a nominal enrollment fee) while undertaking an internship but this is not required. After your first year, you may consider taking on an internship during the fall or spring. You can find internships by contacting the Hameetman Career Center.
