The foundation of the UCDC program is experiential learning. By interning 32 hours per week, students have the opportunity to:
- Strengthen their professional skills
- Develop networking abilities and gain significant contacts
- Gain knowledge about potential career paths
Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of the program, students are encouraged to research and secure internships with organizations that match their academic and career goals.
Resources for Researching Internships
|UC Washington Center
|Internship advice from UC alumni and a listing of internships received by the Center
|UC San Diego Career Services Center
|Internships organized by discipline and research areas
|UC Merced Center for Career and Professional Advancement
|Help finding internships, resume and cover letter tips, and interview prep
The UCDC program does not provide internship placement; securing an internship is the primary responsibility of the student. Students are encouraged to consult UCDC program coordinators and the Career Services Center for internship advice and guidance.
