What is an internship?
An internship is a short-term work experience that helps students gain exposure and experience in a field of interest, where they often receive guided learning and the opportunity to build skills. Internships may be aligned with an area of study or within an industry a student is wanting to explore. Internships can be paid, unpaid, and/or offered for course credit. If you want to receive credit for your internship, you should coordinate with your academic advisor or internship coordinator in your major.
