What is an Academic Internship at Clark?

An academic internship is a credit-bearing, career-related work experience of limited duration in which an individual takes on responsible roles outside of the traditional university environment. Academic internships may take place in a nonprofit organization, government office, or for-profit business. Depending on the employer, some internships are paid. Internships include mentoring and supervision by a professional in the field; this valuable form of training allows students to explore their career interests.

Rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors may earn academic credit for internships during the fall, spring, or summer terms.

Note: Graduate students do not use this application process; instead, they work with their academic departments to obtain credit.
