University Honors Program Internships

Take your Honors education to work

In addition to the thought-provoking discussions in your Honors classes, we also make it possible for you to take what you're learning in class and apply it in the world off-campus. With active learning, civic engagement, service-learning and internships, you'll have multiple opportunities to gain practical experience that will enrich your learning. We encourage Honors students to seek meaningful internships and work experience and are always happy to help in the search.

Gaining practical experience

My internship was such an incredible experience. It was an honor to feel so respected and trusted within the company, but most importantly, I am incredibly grateful to have gained knowledge and skills that I can use in my career and life beyond graduation.
