Internships allow you to apply the knowledge you gain in the classroom to a professional setting. These opportunities are the perfect way to use the concepts you learn from your major to earn experience along with academic credit and/or compensation.

You may complete internships either individually or with recognition from Berklee. Please note that for-credit internships must be completed with approval from the Career Center. Students cannot receive retroactive credit.

Students interested in pursuing internships for credit must:
"Internships are all about learning whether or not a certain field or occupation is a good fit for you. Just take it all in, give it your best effort, and, of course, always be willing to help."

—Sami Goldberg, B.M. '21, Film Scoring and Composition

Students who aren't U.S. citizens must receive curricular practical training (CPT) authorization for all internship experiences, paid or unpaid, and can only intern in the U.S. with authorization and by enrolling in an internship course administered by the Career Center.  These students are not eligible to intern for CPT until they have completed two semesters.
