What is an Internship?
Queens College students have the opportunity to gain experience in the professional world through internships. The College-sponsored experiential learning program takes place outside of the classroom. It is a structured and supervised work experience, and offers students practical learning opportunities that complement their classroom learning. Many organizations, including profit, not-for-profit and government agencies, offer internships. Students can either obtain college credit, a modest salary or both for an internship. An internship is an excellent way to discover where your career interests lie.
