Each year, working with alumni, faculty, and industry connections, Common Good and Creative Careers (CGCC) manages a number of focused internship opportunities. These funded opportunities are intended to support and extend creative, public, and non-profit student interest. CGCC currently manages a total of eight different summer programs, ranging in size from one to 30 student recipients per summer. Although these programs cover a wide variety of industries from working on policy initiatives to interning at Yale in Hollywood, we have successfully implemented some consistent programmatic requirements. Further, CGCC appreciates the benefits of experiential learning and therefore takes great pride in striving for substantive opportunities that will allow our students to learn about a particular industry, become immersed in one or more job functions, and network with mentors.
