So, having an internship on your resume is more important than ever! Various study abroad programs enable you to undertake an internship for credit as one of your courses during a semester abroad. There are also a variety of internship-focused, credit-bearing programs offered during the semesters and/or summer terms. In most locations, the study abroad program will collaborate with you to identify and place you into an internship that aligns with your academic interests and professional goals. These internship opportunities typically combine a work placement with a regular seminar course that synthesizes academic learning and professional experience.
