Interested in Internships?
Internships are typically one-time work or service experiences involving students who have already attained considerable academic preparation related to a professional field. The internship plan generally involves advanced undergraduate students, or graduate students, working in professional settings under the supervision and monitoring of practicing professionals.

Internships are very beneficial from a learning perspective, with academic credit generally being awarded for an intern experience.
