Working as an intern in a professional setting can be a great way to “experience” how a discipline serves the community in the real world. Students may also meet and observe the professionals whom they might aspire to be. These internship experiences often lead directly to job offers after graduation and to acceptance and financial support for competitive graduate programs. Additionally, students may earn academic credit for their internships that will count towards graduation.
