Internships are a form of experiential education in which students learn about a career field through paid or unpaid work. Students completing an internship may or may not earn academic credit for the experience. If your academic program requires an internship, you will be required to register for an internship as a separate class and pay for the credit hours.
Whether paid or unpaid, experiential education can enhance your education and make you more marketable to employers. During an internship, you will have the opportunity to apply what you are learning in the classroom and further develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for a successful job search.
