Internships allow students to acquire work experience, establish professional contacts and references, and of course, begin a career.

Some of our degree and certificate programs enable students to earn up to three semester hours after completing an internship. These internships take place off and on-campus, and always involve the close supervision of a faculty advisor and partnering employer.
