Sacramento Semester Program

The Sacramento Semester Program is an outstanding undergraduate internship program in the California State University system. Created and administered by the Sacramento State Government Department, the program places up to 30 students in state government, advocacy, news media, and related offices. Students come from all 22 CSU campuses, as well as from the University of California and other public and private colleges and universities. Students receive six semester credits for working 25 hours per week in the offices of state legislators, legislative committees, the governor, executive branch agencies, political associations, advocacy organizations, or the news media. The students also attend weekly seminars conducted by Sacramento State faculty and earn an additional six semester credits upon completion of the seminars. The Center supports the program by providing assistance with intern recruitment, orientation, and placement.

Financial aide is available to students participating in the Sacramento Semester Program. Funds are available through a number of scholarships, including one developed  by the Center and the Government Department.
