Internships are typically work or service experiences related to the student’s major or career goal.

Internships can be paid or unpaid, and the student could possibly receive academic hours credit for performing the internship. Once you find the internship lead that you are interested in, contact your advisor/professor from your discipline to determine if the internship qualifies for academic credit.
