At ASU, we believe the best way to prepare students for future work in the highly competitive field of film and media is to give them the critical capacity to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the entertainment industry. Ultimately, we believe that students must integrate theory and practice to build a solid foundation for future success in the media They must go beyond the classroom and engage with the industry. The Film and Media Studies Internship Program provides that opportunity, placing students in the creative, financial, organizational, and legal branches of the media industries to gain invaluable hands-on experience.
Film and Media Studies offers internships in Phoenix, Los Angeles, New York, and beyond to connect students with mentors in film, television, and interactive media. Students can develop their talents and skills in the areas of production, development, marketing, editorial, research, exhibition, casting, and technology across the fields of entertainment, news, advertising, and sports.
If you are a student with further questions or a company looking for interns, please contact Dr. Kevin Sandler, Director of Internships, at Kevin.Sandler@asu.edu.
