Internships & Fellowships

Expand your horizons and build your future.

LA Department of Arts & Culture Internships Applications will open on July 15, 2020!

Due to COVID-19, many Theater Companies have put their seasons on hold or cancelled productions altogether. As we get updates on opportunities, we will post them here. The LA Department of Arts & Culture has redesigned their internship program, which funds approximately 200 internships, so that it will begin in August 2020 and will continue into the academic year, with some options for remote work. Positions will be across a broad spectrum of cultural and arts organizations including Theater companies. 

There are many ways to enhance your training as a Theater student at Occidental College, including 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.
