Student Internships

What is an internship?
An internship refers to a work experience in which the student learns by taking on a responsible role as a worker in an organization and reflects on what happens in that role. Interns are expected to interpret both the external environment and internal environment of the organization and related this to ideas, concepts and theories discussed in the classroom.

Why do an internship?
Interns obtain work experience, apply concepts and conceptual knowledge to actual business situations, gain insights into career opportunities and become potential candidates for full-time positions. Internships help students connect the discussion in the classroom with the practice of business and often provide networking opportunities. Many internships are paid positions and all carry academic credit.

Who Should I contact about an internship?
Students interested in an internship should contact the chairperson of the department responsible for their major. Students can also contact their faculty advisor and the Office of Career Services to discuss the benefits of an internship.

When should I do an internship?
Students should consider completing an internship during the summer between their junior and senior year, or during their senior year. Students wishing to complete an internship during the summer may need to provide assistance in identifying an appropriate internship sponsor.
