Academic Internships

Academic Internships are designed to supplement classroom learning with practical work-based experience. Upper-year undergraduate students can apply specialized knowledge acquired in their field through a 100 to 200-hour work placement for academic credit.

Internship opportunities include:

  • Supervision by a professional in the field
  • Full- or half-year course credit
  • Experience that enhances a student's academic, career and personal/professional development
  • Excellent experience to include in a resume or CV
  • Job search, resume writing, oral and written communication, and presentation skills development
  • Chance to explore career options
  • Networking

Please note: Not all students who apply to an Academic Internship are accepted. Further, students cannot be guaranteed to be placed with their first choice, but best efforts are made to place students appropriately based on their interests, skills, and goals.
