Course and Program Information

Course Name: International Internship

Course Number: SA 397

Credit Number: 1-4 credits 

Designation: Experiential Learning (EL)

Spend your summer in an international non-paid internship in one of the most vibrant cities in the world, Dublin, Ireland. As the modern business landscape is all about globalization, international markets, and benefiting the public good, there’s never been a better time to make your resume standout than by jumpstarting your career with an internship at a small-to-medium company in Dublin.

While on this internship program, you will complete an internship placement with a small to mid-sized company in Dublin, which is a pre-professional, field-based experience coupled with an academic course with our partner Foundation for Internation Education (FIE). The internship will occur for at least 4 days a week for two months.  Possible internship placement areas include: Accountancy & Finance, Communications, Graphic & Web Design, Business Adminstration, Economics, Charity & Non-profits, History & Cultural Organizations, Human Resources, Media, Information Technology, Advertising, PR & Marketing, Legal & Justice Organizations, Sports, and Travel & Tourism.

Through FIE's internship placements, you have the opportunity to build professional skills, increase industry knowledge and experience working in a different culture and in a major global city.  All internship placements are procured by FIE, so students will not need to find their own internship.
