General Information

Internships are a professional learning experience that typically offers an opportunity for a participant to engage in work and/or learning opportunities that are relevant to a specific discipline or career field of interest. A wide variety of organizations, including research centers/labs, educational institutions, governmental agencies, businesses, and non-profits, offer intersnhip opportunities. Typically interns are provided with on site/out of the classroom, hands-on experiences while under the supervision of experienced personnel. Internships can be paid or unpaid, typically have a defined start and end date, and can run for several weeks to several months. They may be part-time, often accommodating the student's academic schedule, or full-time positions. 

Participating in an internship offers a variety of benefits. Generally speaking, it is a great way of exploring your career field of interest which can be helpful if you are not quite sure of your path. You can gain practical experience and/or learn new skills in your career field of interest which may, in turn, instill you with more confidence and relevant knowledge prior to applying for a related position. Internships also offer networking opportunities by providing you with a chance to meet or work with individuals who are established in the field.
