To help prepare our students for the professional workforce, we require that all students participate in a 40-hour unpaid internship. The purpose of the internship is to give our students the chance to get a glimpse of what it would be like to work in a specific career field. We believe our internship program provides our students with an abundance of benefits:
Internships provide our students with real world experience -The students have the opportunity to work hands on in a professional environment. They gain real world perspective on potential career paths.
Students have the opportunity to build their network and resource base.
