Internships provide the opportunity to relate work activity to educational objectives. Internships of varying design and length are available to students from many academic majors. Such internships provide a practical learning experience as a supplement to classroom instruction. The internship is also a way to test a career choice or to get a foot in the door for a potential job offer.
Students interested in completing an internship must meet the criteria required by their major program and have approval of the faculty member supervising the internship, and the division chair. Students interested in registering for internships need to plan early in order to secure an appropriate work situation and gain approval.
