Music Department Publicity Internship Overview

The Cal Poly Pomona Music Publicity Office has many opportunities for student interns.  Unpaid internships provide students with the opportunity to work on campus, in a busy publicity office, and to experience an on-the-job, deadline driven, application of their course studies. 

Students in Communications and Music Industry Studies majors, who are interested in music event production and publicity, are best suited for these internships. 

Interested students should contact their major office for specific department requirements, and then contact the Music Publicist for an interview.
