Internships are great opportunities for you to explore career interests, gain critical skills specific to professional disciplines, and increase your marketability to employers. Designed to be an integral part of students' academic programs, the Internship Program at SPU allows students to earn credit (typically 1-5 credits per quarter) for learning gained in a work setting. Internships generally range from 10-20 hours of work per week for 1-5 credits; typically 3-4 hours of work per week per credit.

Each school sets specific prerequisites for participation in internships. For more information regarding your major requirements, contact your academic department or faculty advisor.
