Internship Information


We help you choose from over one hundred organizations where you can intern and apply your classroom learning by helping people from childhood through old age, providing direct service to clients or working on specific organizational or community projects. Internships help develop professional skills, career knowledge, work experience, and networks and contacts. They also help you build a strong resume, and provide a vital opportunity to connect academic knowledge with real world experience. Interns are supervised both by a faculty member and a professional in the placement organization.
