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.
