Internships Program

  • Internships are a supervised work/learning experience that exposes students to the professional responsibilities of a particular career field. The student intern is the primary beneficiary of the relationship, while the sponsoring organization provides supervision, structure and evaluation. Internships occur in accordance with the academic calendar:
    • fall semester (Sept. – Dec.)
    • spring semester (Jan. – May)
    • summer break (June – Aug.)
  • Academic year internships are part-time, while summer internships may be part or full-time and have the following components:
    • Juniors and seniors may pursue academic credit for internships. Students are responsible for the timely coordination of academic credit.
    • A faculty supervisor oversees the academic learning components of the internship, while the site supervisor oversees the intern’s work, learning and performance at the site.
    • A Learning Agreement is completed by the student intern in consultation with his/her faculty and site supervisors, and it is signed by all parties.
    • Usually a minimum of 8-15 hours per week must be worked. In many cases, an intern can be paid and receive credit. It is the student’s responsibility to be fully informed of the details of his/her academic internship course.
  • Paid internships are preferred, especially during the summer. Sponsoring organizations offering non-paying internships must adhere to the legal criteria established for volunteer internships.

 On-Campus Recruiting
