What is an internship and why do one?

An internship is a supervised, real-world learning experience related to your major or career field. Internships allow you to:

  • explore a career field and determine if it is a good fit for your skills and interests.
  • form relationships with professionals who may help you connect to other companies, organizations or experiences.
  • demonstrate work-related knowledge and skills which will increase your marketability for future internships and full-time positions.


If there is a possibility that your internship will put you in course overload, you must submit a completed and signed Request for Permission to Enroll for an Overload form to the registrar by the first day of the semester.
