An internship is a supervised on-site experience where students can participate in a real world job before graduation. Internships give students the opportunity, through hands-on experience, to determine if a particular career is the right choice. Employers indicate that they hire approximately 32% of their interns as full-time employees. And over half of new hires in the nation have had some type of internship experience.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness offers services to assist students in finding internship opportunities. Internships are available in a wide range of areas.
