    What is an Internship?

    Internships are typically one-time work or service experiences related to a student's major or career goal. The internship plan generally involves a student working in a professional setting under the supervision and monitoring of practicing professionals.

    Internships can be paid or unpaid and the student may or may not receive academic credit for performing the internship.
