An internship is an opportunity to enhance classroom learning through practical experience. Internships may be full-time or part-time, depending on the employer’s needs. Most positions are for one semester, though some are designed for longer periods. Internships can be found in corporate and private businesses, government agencies and nonprofit organizations. All internships should have the common goal of providing students supervision and a chance to learn while contributing to an organization.
