- An internship is a carefully monitored work or service experience in which an individual has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what he or she is learning throughout the experience. It may be paid or unpaid. Internships may be scheduled during an academic semester or across the summer and it may be set in a business, nonprofit, government, or educational institution.
Internships help students by:
- Providing valuable work experience
- Offering an opportunity to investigate an organization or career
- Developing business contacts and build networking skills
- Training them to perform specific work functions
Check with the staff in the Career Services Center for more information about internships. Also, access the Career Guide to find more information on Internships. Different organizations may call internships Service Learning/Volunteering, Apprenticeships, Externships/Mentoring/Shadowing and Work Study. Some internships may offer academic credit. Check with your academic advisor to see if your department offers credit and to see if an internship requires a faculty sponsor or approval.
