Media production is an extremely competitive profession. Your undergraduate studies at The Mount allow for a solid foundation upon entering the industry. A time-proven method of gaining experience and entrance into the field is through internships.
Internships, adding up to an optional 12 units of academic credit, are a key component of our program. Hands-on film, television and media experience and professional networking opportunities are obtained through internships.
Internships are assigned on an one-on-one basis depending upon each student's future professional interests, whether it be in film production, screenwriting, television programming, entertainment marketing, etc. The Film Program Director works individually with each student to determine the best internship fit according to career goals, previous experience, and courses completed.

Twentieth Century Fox
Dick Clark Productions
Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of LA
Worldwide Production Agency
Terry Hines & Associates
