Kickstart your Career
Internships are a great way to apply knowledge from the classroom to real-world experience. By applying your skills to the workforce, you have the chance to explore different career paths and specializations that suit your interests. In addition, the extra experience gained through an internship will boost your marketability. In fact, students who graduate with internship experiences are more likely than students without those experiences to find employment upon graduation.
Internships provide a great environment to meet professionals in the career field you want to pursue, as well as other interns who have similar interests. These connections often land our students with full-time job offers.
All students are encouraged to complete an internship, and students majoring in digital media, political communication and public relations are required to have three hours of internship credit upon graduation.
