An Internship is a short-term work experience in which you receive training and gain experience in a field or career area relative to your major. It allows you the opportunity to explore careers and apply what you're learning in the classroom.

Internships may be full- or part-time depending on the time of year they are completed. They may last from 90 days to a semester or longer. Internships are available in a variety of fields including healthcare, education, business, arts, and science disciplines. They may occur in the private sector, government, or not-for-profit organizations.

By completing an internship students:

  • May be eligible to earn academic credit.
  • May/may not receive pay for the experience.
  • Are able to explore career options.
  • Develop professional networking contacts that can increase their chances of landing a full-time position after graduation.
  • Build professional experience into their resume.
