Internships

Students in Liberal Arts disciplines are uniquely prepared for the job market with a foundation of communication, analytical, and problem solving skills. Now, it is up to you to decide where you want to apply those skills – which industry, job field, etc.

Internships provide opportunities to learn by doing, and are great ways to test-drive a possible career, get your foot in the door, and start building a professional network. As a bonus, you might get paid or receive academic credit!
