What is an internship?
An internship is a supervised work experience related to the student’s major or career goal that has intentional learning goals to achieve throughout the experience.

What is the purpose of an internship?
The purpose of an internship is to allow students to explore and gain experience in their major or career field of interest before they actually begin the career. Internships provide job training with professionals in the industry, allow for interns to obtain first-hand knowledge of a field, industry and/or employer, build their resume, and establish a network of professional contacts, mentors, and references.
