Internships

An internship is a learning experience that typically involves collaboration between students, employers, and universities.

The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) provides the following as a definition to the term "internship:"

"An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent."
