Internships and Co-ops

"Experiential learning" in the form of internships, co-operative education, practicums, externships, and job shadowing are a great way for students to gain practical skills and experience from on-the-job training that cannot be found in the classroom setting.

Additional benefits of completing an internship include:

  • "Test drive" a career to learn about the field and determine if it is a good fit for you
  • Gain a "real world" perspective on your chosen occupation and the culture of that field
  • Gain insight and a better focus on your academic work
  • Start building your professional network
  • Establish relationships with mentors
  • Develop new skills related to the field
  • Earn college credit
  • Experience
