DTC Internships

Digital Technology & Culture student internships can be paid work experience, through a formal internship program at a company, or even a volunteer position. Many students find internships on campus or in the Palouse area. Others do theirs outside the area or virtually. While students’ internship experiences are diverse, the common theme of the DTC internship is for students to apply their critical thinking and technical skills in a real-world environment.

Three credits of DTC 498: Internship are required to graduate with a BA in Digital Technology and Culture. Students may choose to do these all at once or in 1 credit segments.  Each 50 hours of work at an internship site amounts to 1 semester credit.

Before the semester that a student anticipates that they will be interning they need to: fill out the internship form. (Note: you cannot bypass this process and enroll yourself in DTC 498.) Once the application is complete, the student will receive an email from the DTC Advisor confirming registration for the internship course. Once the student is registered and the semester has started, the DTC Faculty Internship Assistant will contact the student via Blackboard.

During the semester they work at their internship site students are required to complete a midterm check in report as well as a final report. More information about these requirements are on the Professional Development Requirements page.

While it is ultimately up to each student to find an internship, opportunities are often posted on the DTC Facebook page & listserv.

Current Students can submit their internship information for approval here.

If you have an internship opportunity that you would like to share with our students then submit it here.
