Work Experience


Welcome!

Title V of the California Education Code permits the college to extend the classroom beyond the campus to the workplace.  Through the Work Experience program students are provided with an opportunity to earn academic credit while gaining hands-on experience in their career related field under the guidance of industry professionals.  Employers establish a cooperative relationship with the college, providing an opportunity to influence vocational education and address industry training needs.  The instructor and the worksite supervisor act as “co-educators” to help the student define and achieve measurable learning objectives. 

The Arts Division currently offers Work Experience in the following disciplines:

  • Animation & Gaming
  • Audio Arts (Coming Soon)
  • Film & TV
  • Fine Arts (Coming Soon)
  • Graphic Design
  • Photography
  • Radio & Broadcasting
  • Technical Theater (Coming Soon)

Students enrolled in Work Experience may earn one unit of academic credit for every 60 unpaid or 75 paid hours of work per term, earning 1 to 3 units per term. 

Minimum Hours Required
Units of Enrollment Non-Paid Paid
1 60 Hours  75 Hours
2 120 Hours 150 Hours
3 180 Hours 225 Hours


A combined maximum of sixteen units of Work Experience may be earned during a student’s academic career.

Work Experience courses align with the term:

  • Fall/Spring Semester = 16 weeks
