Undergraduate Internship Program

Internships provide students with valuable professional experience to compete successfully in the job market. Students not only gain work experience but establish professional contacts and build portfolios. We strongly encourage students to complete an internship before graduation. 

C&J students can earn a total of six credits through internships, but no more than three credits in any one semester.  To be eligible, students must have a 2.5 GPA and have at least nine hours in C&J (including one course at the 300 level). 

Students can easily find internship recruitment notices on the C&J undergraduate listserv, the C&J Facebook page and on the hallway bulletin boards. (Students can request to be on the undergraduate C&J listserv by sending an email to our program advisement coordinator, Jessica Chavez, jflynn@unm.edu.)

Participating Companies/Organizations

Internship opportunities are created by non-profit and for-profit employers who provide a “recruitment notice” to the C&J Department.  

Recruitment notices should be posted as far in advance as possible to give students an opportunity to consider their opportunities and make their plans. 

Potential partners should contact C&J Faculty Internship Coordinator, Professor of Practice Michael Marcotte, at mmarcotte@unm.edu.
