Experience and Professional Development

Academic Internship Program


The CSB and SJU academic (for credit) internship experience is a form of experiential education that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting.

  • Internships generally run 10-20 hours per week over a 16-week semester or 12 weeks over the summer.
  • During the academic year, students typically participate in internships part time while taking classes.
  • Full-time internships are possible, especially during the summer.
  • Students seek local, national and international internships within organizations of all sizes, industries and types.
  • Internships can be paid or not paid, for credit or no credit.
  • Academic (for credit) internships are a three-way partnership between the educational instruction, the host organization, and the student intern.
  • See below for deadlines and registration due dates.
