Internship Programs

Gain practical skills that will transfer to the workplace. Apply your coursework. Launch your career! Take advantage of thousands of internships organized through the Internship & Career Center (ICC) or initiate your own. There is literally something for everyone! An internship may be full-time or part-time, credit-bearing or non-credit bearing, voluntary or paid, depending on your skills, needs and interests, as well as the availability of openings. We are continuing to create more paid opportunities through Federal Work-Study and grants. Internship experiences emphasize learning and must be supervised by a professional.
