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.
