What is an Internship?
An internship is a supervised on-site learning experience. The primary purpose of the internship is to provide an opportunity for a student to apply coursework knowledge in a real work setting.
Internships offer the opportunity to confirm your career and academic choice, work in a paid (or sometimes non-paid) full or part-time career related position, network with professionals in your field, and increase your marketability upon graduation. Depending on the requirements of your academic department, academic credit may be offered.
