Local Internships

Local internships provide students of all majors with the opportunity to put their classroom experiences to work. Students may complete internships solely for experience or they may receive academic credit.

Benefits of an Internship

Obtaining an internship not only makes you more marketable as a job candidate, but gives you the opportunity to gain greater understanding about your chosen field.
