Internship Opportunities

Internship sites can be found locally, nationally, and internationally. Internships may be paid or unpaid and are available for up to 12 credits. A variety of internships are available across disciplines and within various industry segments.

Internships provide positions of responsibility for students in a professional environment under the supervision of an on-site professional and a faculty advisor. While internships may be on or off campus experiences, they are generally characterized by an independent design and the integration of classroom work with practical experiences.

An internship is designed to introduce the student to the opportunities, duties, and responsibilities of personal career objectives through an experience collaboratively planned by the student, academic department, the employer, and the internship coordinator. Thus, the student not only is made aware of the potential of a chosen career, but also becomes more acutely sensitive to the value of, and the necessity for, remaining academic studies.

Internship Requirements

All students must receive permission of the Business Administration Department to engage in an internship. The following minimum requirements apply:

  1. Students must be in good academic standing at the University to participate in an internship.
  2. Students must have completed 12 credits at Castleton.
  3. Students must be matriculated prior to applying for an internship.
  4. The Internship Contract form requires approval of a Castleton faculty supervisor, the on-site supervisor, and the internship coordinator.
  5. Internships may be taken either on a pass/no pass basis or for a grade.

Internship Examples

Castleton students have benefited from internships in the financial sector, the healthcare sector, the hospitality and resort management sector, and the manufacturing sector, including recent internships with the following businesses:
