Internships

Internships are a wonderful way to gain career-related experience while in college. An internship is an on-site work experience either directly related to your major or your career interest. In today’s highly competitive job market, a degree alone often is not enough to secure desired employment. Many employers are interested in graduates who possess hands-on, applicable work experience.

Many different types of internships are available, including paid, solely academic and unpaid (with or without credit). All of them offer a wonderful learning experience. Learn about the different internship types that exist and which one is best for you using the drop-downs below!

This type of internship is an opportunity for students (first year – senior) to integrate career-related experiences directly to their major field of study or career interest. Students gain valuable on-the-job work experience, develop new skills, apply knowledge gained from coursework, clarify career choices, and establish contacts and networks within an industry. The internships must emphasize intentional learning and be well-planned and structured by an on-site supervisor. The internship experience must contribute to the student’s personal and professional development through challenging work assignments.

These internships are done under the guidance and supervision of an appointed faculty member assigned within each particular major. Students participate in academic internships while they carry a full- or part-time student course load. Academic departments have specific guidelines and requirements that vary by major. The designated faculty member for the major determines if the internship opportunity meets the department’s requirements with regard to the terms and conditions concerning hours required to work, compensation, academic-based assignments and grading system.
