An internship is academically-recognized, experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships provide opportunities:
- for students to gain valuable experience and demonstrate learning as they make professional connections and validate their choice of career field and work environment
- for employers to guide, assess, and develop workforce talent
- for educators to demonstrate the social relevance and practical applications of their disciplines and learning outcomes
- for IUPUI to forge sustainable, mutually-beneficial relationships with the community.
