Internships and Experiential Learning
Gaining practical, work-based experience brings academic learning to life and provides the skills and knowledge needed for career success.
The Sullivan Career & Life Planning Center supports learners in obtaining relevant experiential opportunities, careful reflection to connect the classroom to the workplace, and building their career networks through interpersonal connections. From virtual job shadowing to internships for credit, we work with students and alumni to find creative opportunities for personal growth and professional advancement.
Undergraduate students completing an internship for credit should schedule an internship coaching session.
