Internships

  • Increase Your Competitiveness in the Market

    We encourage participation in several experiential learning activities during your undergraduate career in order to build your resume and help you gain useful skills.

How important is job experience?

Internships and experiential learning are a critical part of your academic and professional growth, helping you bridge the gap between classroom theory and practical on-the-job application. In your academic program, the hands-on, career-related learning in which you participate may be known as field placements, clinical rotations, capstone research, or practicums. During these unique experiences, you will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills learned in class to real work situations while being mentored by professionals in your industry of interest. This experiential approach also helps you learn about civic engagement and life issues for the world beyond graduation.

Most undergraduate programs at Stevenson require at least one credited internship or experiential learning placement as part of the curriculum. Credited internships typically require at least 120 hours on site; this may vary depending on your program of study. In addition to internships completed for credit, all students have the option of completing a non-credit internship – an experience that still allows for great applied learning, but there is no minimum number of hours required, nor do you receive academic credit for the experience.

No matter your major or the type of experience you seek, the Office of Career Services, working closely with Stevenson faculty, helps to support the career development and life experiences you'll need to prepare as an emerging young professional.
