An internship is a general term referring to a partnership between students, institutions of higher education and employers that integrates students' academic study with work or community service experience.
Internships are of a specific and definite duration and provide a student the opportunity to explore areas of interest. Internships are currently non-credit courses and may provide students with compensation in the form of wages or salaries, stipends or scholarships. Students have the opportunity to build their resumes through internship experiences.
Students must register for the non-credit internship course. Contact the Career Center staff to do this.

- Internships may be paid or unpaid
