Field experience is an essential element of the Esperanza College program and is offered for students to gain first-hand experience in the field they plan to pursue. For students in the Digital Communication program, field experience/internship opportunities may include local media entities, Spanish Sports Productions, Teatro Esperanza, Theatre 7000, and the media and marketing departments in other corporations or government entities. These and others provide paid and unpaid internships. Upon matriculation into the program, students will work with the Program Director to find the best placement for their field experience. The field experience/internship usually takes place during the last semester of their associate degree program.
