An internship is a short-term work experience designed to provide a useful view of work in a field which interests you. Through an internship you may discover whether or not you would like to work in that field and gain experience which you may cite when you apply for career positions later. Internship can be for academic credit or for no credit. Either way, you are getting valuable experience!
Students interested in completing internships are encouraged to check with their advisor regarding departmental requirements for internships for credit. Please review the Ferrum College Internship Handbook linked below before you meet with your advisor.
