Definition of an Internship
An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills developed in a professional setting. Like co-ops, internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and gives employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent. Students may earn academic credit, as determined by an educational institution or there is another connection to a degree-granting educational institution.
Many of the standards applied to internships also apply to co-ops with these distinct differences:
- Internships may be of a shorter duration than co-ops, may or may not be compensated (although compensation is encouraged), while compensation for a co-op is standard practice
- Discuss your internship interest with your faculty advisor and your department's faculty internship coordinator
