WHAT IS AN INTERNSHIP? 

 An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned

in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. 

Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make

connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give

employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.
