Cal State East Bay encourages all students to have at least one internship before graduation. Internships may be paid or unpaid, taken for academic credit or not, and typically provide a student with a real-life work experience related to their future career or interests. Internships are structured learning opportunities and can occur during the summer or academic year. 

Meeting with a member of the AACE career team and utilizing our Career Services page can help you prepare for internships. Opportunities are posted on Handshake, our job and internship platform.
