Internships are an excellent way to gain relevant work experience. In a competitive employment market, internships become a vital part of your resume and may set you apart from other applicants. Internships can also help with exploration of various industries, occupational/professional fields and employers.
Internships may be paid or undertaken for academic credit. Academic internships are negotiated between the student and a sponsoring faculty member. The Office of Professional Development and Faculty Mentors can work with you to explore internship opportunities.
