Jump-start Your Career

An internship gives you hands-on experience in your chosen profession. You will learn more about your major, make important connections and gain self-confidence. And an added bonus — you may come away with a job offer, as many companies use internships to prescreen prospective employees.

Internships come in many different formats. Your experience may be paid (with salary and benefits determined by your employer) or unpaid (if working for a non-profit). You may work part time while taking classes or full time during the summer or academic year. You may receive university credits for your internship or elect to have it recorded on your university transcript as a non-credit learning experience. Internships taken for credit can be used to satisfy course requirements in your major.

Students are not required to complete an internship however are strongly encouraged to complete at least one internship during their college career.
