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
Because an internship is not a graduation requirement for Business students, these courses are not required but are an option for students needing or wanting to earn credit for their internship experience. Please note they are actual courses with assignments and a final letter grade, and tuition and fees are assessed. For more information on the courses and to apply, please visit the links below.
