The Internship Program

The Internship Program offers students the opportunity to earn academic credit while applying their classroom learning in the workplace. The requirements of the internship vary depending on the student’s academic major and supervisor. The Internship Coordinator in the Career Center can provide students seeking an internship with the following:

  • Resume, cover letter and interview preparation.
  • Advice, research assistance, contacts, and internship leads.

The Career Center also maintains several online databases of internship leads and contacts.

International students must secure employment authorization from the International Program Office before participating in an internship.

Internship Course

This course is designed for any student who is undecided about an academic major, but has an internship opportunity. Students develop goals for their internship, maintain an internship journal, develop their résumé, and make a final presentation about their internship experience. This course is intended for students who are about to begin an internship.

This course will provide an opportunity to freshmen and sophomore students who have not yet declared a major, but have an interest in completing an internship. An internship at this point in a student’s academic development would provide an opportunity to explore career interests, expose the student to industry, and introduce him/her to additional career-development resources. If the student goes on to choose a major which requires an internship, s/he may return with an expanded role and additional responsibilities, thus, gaining a fuller, more rewarding experience than would otherwise be possible. The internship experience will aid the student in selecting a major and developing a course of academic action.
