Academic Internships

Academic Internships are designed to supplement classroom learning with practical work-based experience. Upper-year undergraduate students can apply specialized knowledge acquired in their field through a 100 to 200-hour work placement for academic credit. While research might not be the focus of your entire Academic Internship, it will play a role.

Internship opportunities include:

  • Structured work experience related to a student’s program and/or career goals
  • Supervision by a professional in the field
  • Full- or half-year course credit
  • Experience that enhances a student’s academic, professional, and personal development
  • Excellent experience to include in a resume or CV Job search, resume writing, oral and written communication, and presentation skills development
  • Chance to explore career options
  • Networking
