The Academic Internship Program provides more than just academic credit
Why choose the Academic Internship Program for my internship?
The University of Cincinnati has more than a century of experience in experiential education so we are one of your best educational options if you want to have real world work experience before you graduate. UC Academic Internships are available to all undergraduate students at the University of Cincinnati who are in a major for which co-op is not mandatory.
How does the program work?
Once you reach sophomore/junior status in your program, you will register for a section of Exploring Academic Internships (PD 3000). This course will prepare you for the internship search process as well as give you the tools you will need for success on your internship. Also during this course, you will be exposed to a wide variety of internship opportunites and participate in interviews to determine which internship you will complete.
Once you have accepted an internship, you will work with your internship supervisor and faculty teaching the internship course to complete the reflection and assement exercises designed to help you get the most out of your internship.
Once you have completed yout first internship, you can choose to continue to complete additional internships with your first employer, or throw your hat back into the ring and search for a new internship experience.
