Internship

The Internship Program is designed to give students hands-on learning experiences in the local business community. Through internships, students are introduced to a chosen career field as an overview of the path of education to that profession. Internships broaden students' knowledge base of the inner workings of the business world and enables them to recognize their own talents, goals, abilities, and interests as they strive to make decisions about their future academic and career goals.
