Help your students take their learning beyond the walls of the classroom.
An internship is more than a job – it is a form of experiential learning integrating knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting.
Through sustained engagement in authentic tasks considered meaningful to the organization, students are able to gain valuable applied experience, make connections in professional fields, and explore intended career paths – all while employers are able to guide and evaluate talent.
Students, employers, faculty, and staff – we’re here for you!

My internship as a teacher's assistant for the History of Rhetorical Theory for Dr. Braddy enhanced my leadership skills, organization skills, and adaptability. I honestly volunteered for this position just because I like the professor so much. I enjoyed working with the students and all of their personalities. Overall, it was a great semester and a wonderful experience I’d recommend to anyone. ”
As a Student Teacher at Allen Park Elementary School, I learned and experienced firsthand the importance of developing relationships with students, catering to their needs, and fostering their passions! I have grown professionally and begun preparing myself for my career after graduation. To prepare for each week, I wrote and conducted lesson plans. During the week I assisted the classroom teacher with anything she needed and acted as her shadow, observing everyday teacher duties in different grades and subject areas. ”
Doing my internship with the Collier County Department of Health showed me just how varied but unified the public health field is and peaked my interest in working with a well-coordinated team as such. I was able to obtain knowledge of the different departments and helped to aid in my critical thinking skills, time-management, and use the knowledge gained from my courses in Public Health. ”
