Our Internship Program allows students to gain professional roles within various organizations and helps them define career choices and obtain practical experience.
1. Students learn more about their field and get practical training. They connect knowledge obtained in class to the workplace.
2. Students can determine if the career they are considering is right for them and change focus if it is not.
3. Students find mentors and future professional references from internship supervisors.
4. Internships build resumes. Employers look for practical experience in addition to educational credentials.
Internships are available in any major and can be done during the academic year or in the summer.

Juniors and seniors are eligible to register for internships during the fall, spring, winter, and summer sessions. Interns earn three credits by working 120 hours at the internship site and completing academic and career-related assignments.
All internships must be approved by the Director of Career Development and Internships and/or the Internship Supervisor in the academic department. Students may earn up to six credits for internships during their time at the College. Academic credit is not given for any paid employment.
Students are required to sign an Internship Agreement, which specifies the number of hours they will work per week, their responsibilities, and their internship assignments. The site supervisor, faculty supervisor, and Director of Career Development and Internships also sign the agreement.
Registered students should submit the agreement to the Office of Career Development and Internships by the end of the first week of classes.
