Workplace Learning


Internships are non-credit bearing, flexible work experiences that allow current students and recent graduates enrolled in participating for-college-credit programs and Corporate and Continuing Education programs to explore a career path or gain practical field experience.

In an internship, the student's work schedule's start and end dates are flexible depending on the employer's needs and the student's schedule; students coordinate a set schedule with the employer. Students have no minimum hour project requirement. Project work, contract-based, time-based internships can range from a weekend experience to an entire year in length.
