Whether it’s working with world-renowned scientists at NASA or with the Boston Red Sox, Stonehill can connect you with internships that help you hone your career plans and give you contacts that can turn those plans into reality.

  • Local Internships

  • Domestic Internships

    Experience New York, Washington, D.C., or Los Angeles with one of our domestic internship programs. We’ve got housing, transportation and amazing opportunities waiting for you.

  • Externships

    Students have the opportunity to explore their career interests in Boston, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. while enhancing their networking skills and independently navigating their way around the city.

The Career Development Center (CDC) at Stonehill College recognizes the individuality and unique needs of each student, graduate and employer, and is committed to flexible and personalized engagements.

Leadership Through Research

From discovering a new species of bacteria to uncovering the motivations of an enigmatic Russian poet, undergraduate research at Stonehill is broad and varied. You will even find students working closely with faculty on graduate-level research as early as the summer after their first year. Our programs are also distinctive for the range of available opportunities, within and across disciplines, to complete in-depth inquiry in the social sciences, natural sciences and the humanities.

Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)

For nearly 20 years, the Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) has given Stonehill students an outstanding opportunity to be part of a community of scholars. Those accepted into the program as SURE Scholars receive a stipend for an eight- or ten-week full-time summer session and complete intensive research projects in the liberal arts, business, education and the sciences alongside knowledgeable faculty mentors. 

Through in-depth study, SURE projects help students define and solidify career choices and provide a competitive advantage when applying to graduate school. Many participants also go on to co-publish results in professional journals or present research conclusions at regional and national conferences.

Recent SURE Projects

  • A Cross Cultural Comparison of the Roles and Status of Women and Girls in India and China (Communication)
  • Deconstruction and the Courage of the Truth (Philosophy)
  • Executive Storytelling (Business)
  • Exploring the Quality of Brazil’s Democracy (Political Science)

Deeper Learning Through Doing

Living what you learn not only gives you a competitive advantage once you graduate but also helps you sharpen your sense of who you are and what you want to do. Stonehill makes sure students have a robust selection of ways to gain greater understanding of – and experience in – the fields that intrigue them.
