A full listing of CAPA's Fall course offerings can be found on the CAPA London Courses section of the website.
Any junior or senior enrolled in the CAPA London program may do an internship. Sophomores with ample experience will be considered for participation as well. Placements are available in a wide variety of fields that match the interests, talents, and backgrounds of the students. Internships are for one semester (15 weeks) and are worth six credit hours. Students who participate in CAPA internships must also enroll in a special course component called PELA (Perspectives on Experiential Learning Abroad). The CAPA internship coordinator will locate an internship in the student's general area of interest and provide support services on a continual basis throughout the semester. Placements are available at small businesses, corporations, art facilities, government agencies, brokerage houses, publishing companies, museums, and radio stations, to name a few. Specific placements will depend on the background, training, interests, and ability of students, as well as their success in securing the internship in an interview during the first few days in London. Note: Students interning in London require a visa.
