What is an academic internship?
An academic internship is an opportunity for a student to gain work experience and satisfy course requirements for their degree or certificate. Students are placed with an organization in their community, when available, and sometimes without pay. An internship is an excellent way to gain hands-on experience in a career field while building a resume and identifying a network of professional contacts.
