Internships give students the opportunity to put theory into practice while at the same time enriching student resumes with professional work experience. Students generally receive academic credit but not pay for internships, although practices vary by academic department. Information about internships for which credit is received can be obtained from the relevant academic department. Internships are usually completed as part of a student's course work during the regular semester. For information about paid internships or cooperative work experiences see the Learn@Work link.
