Internships are invaluable preparation for life after graduation. They can provide a better understanding of the industry in which you are employed, improve your resume, and give you work experience. The College of Social Sciences and Public Policy strongly encourages you to seek internship opportunities.
Some units of the College offer undergraduate internship courses that enable students to obtain course credits for their internships. These programs also keep a record of internships in Florida and in Washington D.C. that are available for undergraduate students.
