Counseling Intern Program

The intern program in the Counseling Department at San Diego City College consists of a one year formal introduction and training in all aspects of the services provided by the Counseling Department.  The intern is formally mentored by a full-time faculty member of the Counseling Department and the objective is to provide the intern with enough knowledge and experience to better prepare them to work in the Community College environment.

Internships may also be offered in other campus Counseling Programs such as EOPS.
