Student internships provide opportunities for students to gain experience in their field, determine if they have an interest in a particular career, or to earn academic credit through course enrollment. 
An internship is a short-term, supervised professional training or work experience designed to allow students to apply acquired skills and knowledge to practical situations. An internship is usually related to a students major field of study. Internships, depending on if a student is taking it during the Fall, Spring, or Summer semester, may be part-time or full-time with the internship typically lasting between six to twelve weeks. An internship may be either paid or unpaid, on- or off-campus.
