Internship Information for Students

Internships are defined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) as: "A form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent."

By participating in an internship, you have the opportunity to:

  • Explore an industry, career path or organization
  • Gain practical, hands-on professional work experience
  • Build and hone skills employers look for when hiring college graduates
  • Network with professionals and make valuable connections for references, future opportunities and mentorship
  • Apply knowledge acquired in the classroom to the world of work
