Since 1985, more than 1000 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.
- Students typically intern in their junior year or first semester of the senior year.
- Students intern for between 20-36 hours per week depending on the location
- 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.
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.
