What is an Internship?



Internships are hands-on experiences that relate to a specific major or career interest and usually involve training and responsibilities for which the student has already completed appropriate academic coursework. An internship may be full-time or part-time for the duration of a semester or summer. Internships can be paid or unpaid. Students may receive college credits for an internship.
