International Internships

Since 1985, more than 600 Stonehill students have grown intellectually and personally as a result of their participation in the International Internship Program. International internships are offered via Stonehill's Office of International Programs.

Dublin Internship

Internships in Dublin offer students the chance to work with internationally-recognized companies and national European organizations, while experiencing the warmth of a small, welcoming city. 

London Internship

An exciting and cosmopolitan European city, London is a major political, financial and cultural center, graced with more parks and gardens than any other capital in the world. 

Madrid Internship

Madrid is the center of Spain's business and government; the entire country revolves around what happens in this city. In addition to getting professional experience in another country, students will also be exposed to how business is done in another language. 

Paris Internship

The rich language and culture of France experienced through the lens of an internship, offers students an extraordinary opportunity to integrate into Parisian life. Students benefit by fine-tuning their language skills and developing practical professional skills. 

“ Interning abroad provides an incredibly unique experience. You are not merely a foreigner; rather, you are actively participating in society by going to work each and every day.”
 Adriana Solimine ’14 Florence, Italy

Overview

  • Students typically intern in the second semester of the junior year or first semester of the senior year.
  • Students intern for 40 hours per week in each location except for London where students intern for 20 hours per week.
  • Interns earn a full semester of course credits. (15 credits)
  • If working in an English-speaking environment, interns take academic courses to enrich their intercultural learning.

Benefits

This type of experiential learning creates an appreciation for the challenge of a professional career, assists the student in the transition between four years of higher education and the work environment, helps to build self-confidence and interpersonal competence, and prepares the student better for a senior capstone experience in the student's major discipline. In addition, the international internship allows the student to live and work as a professional in another culture, and often immersed in another language.

In combination with a study abroad experience

Some study abroad programs also offer internships in replacement for one of the courses taken during the semester.
