Student Internships

Internships

An internship is a form of experiential learning that allows students to earn course credits for work completed in an occupational setting. This experience is designed to help students bridge the gap between academic coursework in their field and real-world settings. 

Are you looking for hands-on experience in your field, while earning course credit? If so, an internship may be right for you!
