Internships and Funding

Gain Experience, Earn Course Credit

We encourage you to supplement the learning you receive in the classroom with immersive experiential learning via an internship.

In dozens of cities around the world, Berklee interns:

  • earn income and course credits;
  • build marketable skills;
  • establish professional relationships; and
  • gain the inside perspective crucial for keeping pace with a changing industry.
