Internships are available for every CGS student in every area of study. CGS students have completed internships with a variety of well-known companies and organizations throughout the Pittsburgh region and beyond.

Featured Internship Opportunity

The College of General Studies (CGS), Pitt Athletics, and the Pitt Panthers Television department have teamed up to provide students with an exciting new internship opportunity. Students selected for an internship at Pitt Panthers TV work with an executive producer to cover a Pitt sport, and learn how to produce live television broadcasts for air on The Comcast Network, ACC Digital Network, and/or ESPN 3. Interns may create graphics for broadcasts, write scripts for talent, edit highlight packages, assist the director, and more.

Successful interns are self-starters who enjoy being creative and working with others, and who want to learn how to successfully produce live television. The internship is offered for credit and may grow into a paid position in the control room for the right candidate. To apply, send a resume, cover letter and which Pitt sport(s) interests you to kzitch@athletics.pitt.edu. For more information, see your CGS advisor.
