The primary purpose of an internship is to present students an opportunity to work directly in a professional atmosphere so they can connect the classroom and the work environment. An internship allows students to gain professional experience, explore careers, discover more about themselves, plan for the future and, in many cases, receive academic credit.

An internship is a form of study combining field work with academic activities. It allows students to augment classroom learning by working in a business organization or with the media. By completing suitable academic work under the direction of the intern coordinator and a professional sponsor, students may earn three hours of academic credit.
