Internships

Internships, also referred to as work-based learning, provide the opportunity for students to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to real-life work experiences that will assist with the careful selection of a viable profession upon graduation.

Because the career search process can be competitive, students are encouraged to participate in the internship program from as early as the summer following their freshman year. Participating in internships this early provides at least three work-based learning experiences that will significantly increase your confidence and marketability in applying for full time jobs and/or applying to graduate/professional school.
