What is an internship?
An internship is a paid or unpaid, closely monitored, highly structured, strategic, well defined, project-related program that provides professional work experience outside of the classroom environment. An internship merges academic, personal development and career exploration in one. Internships can be full-time over the summer or part-time for three or more months during a semester and some can last for several years.
