Internships are an excellent way to investigate potential career paths, add to your skills, and make contacts. Information is available at the office of Academic and Career Services.
Academic and Career Services has a list of sponsoring organizations that have already been approved to offer internships, and you can also design your own internship in consultation with the Academic and Career Services staff. Internships can take place during the academic year or during the summer. You can earn academic credit for an internship that relates to your field of study, or you can do a non-credit internship. For-credit internships require you to work with a faculty advisor in the ELC Department; together, you will design a plan to make sure your internship offers a good academic experience, not merely job training.
