Another aspect of the learning journey.

Internships provide our students with their first look at their desired field – like giving their career a “try out”. These first looks can be extremely important, considering how many different paths our program offers. Valuable insights they gain can include how their course work is applied in real-life situations, to the subtlety of workplace dynamics.

The daily tasks of each intern can vary widely, from internship to internship. With each placement, they will grow and expand their ability to think critically. They also have the opportunity to network and develop connections that will serve them further down the road, while earning resume entries that make them stronger candidates for jobs after graduation.
