What is an internship?

An internship can be an exciting part of your education that supplements your academic knowledge, promotes personal development, and provides professional preparation. While on an internship, you can learn more about your chosen profession, meet new people, and gain self-confidence. Having an internship will also aid your job search as many companies use an internship to pre-screen prospective employees.

A business communication internship is a part-time or full-time work experience that lets you integrate your formal study with practical work experience. As a business communication intern, you may be paid for your work (salary and benefits are determined by your employer), and you will receive academic credits for your experience.

While many full-time internships are completed during the summer, other students take a fall and/or spring semester away from campus to complete a full-time internship. Students registering to earn credit for a full-time internship retain full-time student status during the internship semester. Part-time internships are often completed while taking classes.

College of Business students may earn university credit for their internship or may elect to have their college-approved internship recorded on their university transcript as a non-credit learning experience. Internship credit requires additional activity beyond the internship work experience. See your major department for additional details.
