Internships for Credit

Internships are an excellent way to gain “real world” experience in your chosen career or major. 

Other experiential learning opportunities include co-ops, independent studies, practicum, apprenticeships, service learning, field experience, and directed research and externship. 

All of these enhance academic experiences by facilitating exposure to a career field and enabling the student to gain direct experience in a professional setting. Interns may also discover whether or not a desired career path is an appropriate fit.

Internships can be used to:

  • Aid in academic and career decision-making
  • Allow opportunities to use knowledge gained in the classroom
  • Improve post-graduate job prospects by obtaining relevant experience
  • Help develop a network of professional contacts
  • Earn income during the educational process
  • Develop job search skills
  • Provide benefit to the host organization and be used as a prospecting tool for recruitment
