An internship provides hands-on experience in the workforce and can help you clarify your interests, gain experience in an industry, and discover what kind of professional environment is most appealing to you.
Depending on your major, you may need to complete an internship to fulfill your graduation requirements. Check with your academic advisor in the Office of Student Affairs to find out if you can or need to complete an internship for credit.
