Internship Courses INT 100 & INT 200

Occidental College students can earn academic credits/units for completing a fall, spring, or summer internship. Completion of an internship is also noted on your academic transcript.

Cornuelle Fellows Program

Occidental College honors the remarkable intellectual legacy of the late Richard Cornuelle ‘48, and his vision of a democratic society both “free and humane,” through the Richard Cornuelle Fellows Program. Through this generous gift, two (2) fellows are identified annually for a 10-week summer internship experience starting May 29, 2024 through August 2, 2024.

The fellows will complete 32 internship hours per week while working on an academic project that involves reading work in political theory and political philosophy, including some of the work of Richard Cornuelle, and writing a research paper that allows them to reflect on their internship and readings and their overall academic and career goals.

City of Hope Internship Program

Four (4) Occidental College students will be part of the City of Hope's Eugene and Ruth Roberts Summer Student Academy. This academy gives curious and hardworking students the opportunity to learn about science by actually doing science work.

Students who join this program are usually surprised and excited by what they learn about working in the world of science. Many see their names included on published research papers, and some have even patented and sold inventions developed with their mentors.
