An internship is academic, curriculum-based practical work experience in a particular field of study that enhances student learning. Students must be enrolled for the internship course to be an intern. While a qualified supervisor in the workplace directs the larger part of learning, the student is also supervised by a discipline-specific faculty advisor or department administrator who monitors the student's progress and resolves any concerns of the student or the internship provider under policy established by the department/school internship oversight committee.

Nearly all students find jobs and internships on their own. A great resource provided to students to find an internship or job is eRecruiting. Experience is a website where employers post available jobs and internship positions. When students find internship or job positions that they are interested in, they can submit their resumes and schedule a time to interview for the position.
