Internships & Externships

An internship is an extended professional experience in which students execute projects and assignments applying existing skills and developing new ones. Interns experience and learn about the work of an organization while contributing to their mission. An externship allows you to shadow a professional in their workplace for a short period of time. Each option is important to consider, as they can immerse you in an environment where you will learn about a specific industry or career.
