Internships provide the opportunity for a transformational experiential learning process that allows students to apply classroom learning to real-world settings. During the internship experience, many student make important professional connections and often solidify their post-graduation plans.
A meaningful academic internship experience is a collaborative effort between the student, the faculty internship course instructor, and the internship site supervisor. The Office of Career and Professional Development supports students' internship search and application processes. Students should utilize all resources available to them such as their faculty, professional network, internet resources (including Hatter Jobs and LinkedIn), Stetson alumni, and Career and Professional Development staff to maximize their opportunities.
There are several options for students to gain internship experience while at Stetson. Internships can be participated in during the fall, spring and summer semesters, can be paid or unpaid, and can be completed for academic credit or as not-for-credit experiences. For academic internships, students can earn credit in their major or minor with the approval of their academic department.
