Internship Program Description
KQED is excited to offer a robust internship program. This program provides an opportunity for individuals with a passion for public media to gain valuable on-the-job exposure to areas of our business that support the KQED mission, goals and objectives. We currently offer two internship sessions:
Session 1: Begins in January and ends in June.
Session 2: Begins in June and ends in December.
The purpose of both of these sessions is to provide individuals with opportunities to learn and experience elements of the broadcast communications industry. Individuals who participate in our program will have the opportunity to make valuable contributions to our organization.
16 hours per week are recommended (2 - 8 hour days)
Most schedules are flexible.
KQED tries to parallel both quarter and semester systems.
All interns participating in the Academic Internship must be enrolled in a college class or program as a Sophomore, Junior, Senior, or Graduate student; should have an overall grade point average of 2.5 (C+ or better); and must be able to receive academic credit for the internship.
Once an individual is accepted for the academic internship, the individual must provide "Proof of Credit" or a signed verification form from a counselor, major department head, or professor before beginning the KQED internship program.
For students participating in the Advanced Internship, current student status is not required.
