Working on Campus

Internships & Service Learning

Sierra Nevada University has agreements for internship placement with a number of businesses, schools, resorts, and public service agencies. The internship experience complements and reinforces our classroom-based curriculum by allowing SNU students to put their creative and problem-solving skills to work in professional situations.  Interns can earn up to 3 academic credits while experiencing first hand the realities and requirements of potential careers. In many cases, SNU graduates return to their intern placement sites for full-time employment.

The Internship and Service Learning Databases are good starting points for exploring internship opportunities. Please remember:

  • Not all of the placements listed may still be available, or be available during your time frame.
  • All SNU Tahoe students who contact organizations about internships or service learning projects are responsible for presenting themselves in a professional manner – you are representing the college!

Complete information for Students and Employers is in the Internship Handbook.
