Participating in an internship is a great way to put classroom learning into practical experience. While engaged in the supportive environment of an internship you can test career goals, enhance professional skills, develop self-reliance, self-esteem, and responsibility. Furthermore, internships encourage networking with professionals and will provide increased marketability for employment after graduation. Below are two options for earning internship credits. Consider meeting with your academic advisor before making a final decision regarding which option is best for you.
