How Internships Work
You propose a quality internship that uses a student’s analytical knowledge or managerial skills to help solve problems related to the development, implementation, and evaluation of your organization’s policies and/or programs. Evans School Career Services will help you develop a description of the position and publicize it.
Students and employers typically tailor internship positions to fit the needs of both the individual and the organization. The length of employment, hours, and pay varies. Students need to complete a minimum of 400 internship hours to fulfill the graduation requirement.
Although the majority of our students seek full-time summer internships, there are always some who are open to part-time positions during the academic year.
