Where can I intern?

As long as the internship provider is offering a true professional growth experience (we don’t want you to be a coffee-getter) you can intern anywhere you wish. Some students have the resources to intern in locations far from home such as New York, Los Angeles, and Atlanta and so on. Other students choose to intern closer to home where good internships can be found as well. Our students have interned everywhere from the Olympics, to CNN, to the local newspaper or radio station.

Do you find the internship for me?

No. Applying for and finding your own internship is part of your growth experience. We help you by reviewing your cover letters, resume and other application materials including assisting you with interview techniques. You will take much pride in finding your own internship. We often share internship announcements on social media. You can search current internships, if available, in this folder (please note that postings are added as we receive them). We also post announcements on our various social media pages.

Are internships paid?

Most are not, however if the internship provider has a paid internship you may accept it.

How many credits will I earn in my internship?

Most students intern full time for 12 credits which is the maximum number of credits for an internship. However, you can intern for as few as 6 credits. This is particularly helpful in the summer when tuition is based on individual credits.

What do I have to do other than the internship itself to earn credit?

All interns are required to send weekly reports to Dr. Wright. You also have to submit a mid-term and final report. The internship manual has more information about the reports.
