Every undergraduate IST student is required to complete at least one internship for credit while they are completing the IST 495 class in order to graduate. Many students complete multiple internships before leaving campus, but they are not required to take the class multiple times. Most students report receiving a job offer from one of their internship providers. Through internships, you can test-drive a particular set of job duties, a company, or a career path to see if it truly suits your interests and skills.
The Office of Career Solutions and Corporate Engagement coordinates the college's internship requirement and provides resources to help you connect with the more than 300 organizations that recruit IST students–including Corporate Associates–but it is your responsibility to ensure you are meeting the requirements of the program. Review the resources below to begin your journey and connect with a career counselor to make the most of your internship experience.
Additional information on the internship options is listed below.
