What is an internship?

Internships are designed to provide students with the opportunity to apply knowledge gained in the classroom in a work environment and receive college credit for it. Internships may be paid or unpaid. In some cases, for students currently working in a job related to their program of study, the job may be approved as an internship experience.

  • Experience a prospective career path.
  • Gain confidence in abilities.
  • Develop new skills and refine others.
  • Obtain references for future job opportunities.
  • Decide if a career path is right for you.
