Academic Internships

Academic Internship courses are designed to supplement classroom learning with practical work-based experience. Undergraduate students in their third and fourth year can apply specialized knowledge acquired in their field through a 100 to 200-hour work placement for academic credit.

Academic Internships may take place in the public or private sector. Academic Internships include supervision by a professional in the field, and are offered by employers who recognize the importance of professional skills development and mentorship.


Internship Opportunities Include:

  • Structured work experience related to a student's program and/or career goal
  • 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 internship course are accepted. The accepted students are not guaranteed to be placed with their first choice, but will participate in a meaningful experience with one of our many partners.
