After completing their internships, students will have gained valuable first-hand experience in their field, building stronger resumes and better preparing those who choose the option of graduate school.
Internships provide you with off-campus opportunities in your field of interest. This is your opportunity to put into practice the skills and theories you will learn in the classroom and obtain practical hands on experience in significant work-learning situations that expand your outlook and raise your confidence level.
Besides broadening your scope of knowledge and helping you determine whether the area of study you are pursuing is right for you, an internship is a terrific résumé builder. There is no more fruitful way to introduce you to your future world, or develop the leadership qualities to succeed in it.
The College of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies has an Internship Office specifically dedicated to assisting and supporting you in securing internship placements and ensuring that you have the best possible experience. Our internship coordinators will work with you to improve your interviewing techniques, sharpen your résumé writing skills, and direct you to the internship opportunities that match your interests and professional goals. Internship opportunities are available during your sophomore, junior, and senior years. Education majors-see Field Placement Office at 27 Mellen Street.
