Internships are a wonderful way to gain career-related
experience while in college. An internship is an on-site work
experience either directly related to your major or your
career interest. In today's highly competitive job market, a degree
alone often is not enough to secure desired employment. Many
employers are interested in graduates who possess
hands-on, applicable work experience.

Paid Internships (Non-credit)
A non-credit bearing internship, this type of internship is
an opportunity for students (freshmen - senior) to
integrate career-related experiences directly to their major field
of study or career interest. Students gain valuable on-the-job work
experience, develop new skills, apply knowledge gained from
coursework, clarify career choices, and establish contacts and
networks within an industry. The internships must emphasize
intentional learning and are well planned and structured by an
on-site supervisor. The primary role of the supervision provided by
an employer of paid internships focuses on the interns’ learning
and development versus just getting the job done. The
internship experience contributes to the student's personal
and professional development through challenging work
