The most meaningful aspect of my internship experience was the site I got to be at. I really feel as though they worked on their end to ensure I was truly getting an experiential educational experience out of my time there. Being able to observe and ask questions allowed me to practice some vocational discernment in thinking about my future.

Finding the Right Internship

As a complement to your courses, academic internships are one of the best ways to explore your calling. An internship includes several key elements: real-world experience, authentic work, mentoring relationships, enhanced skillsets and a growing professional network. Internships foster discernment about passions, purpose, strengths and values. Indeed, we see them as the way to find connections among what you believe in, what you want to do and who you want to be.

While some degree programs require an internship to graduate, the truth is that everyone can have this opportunity. And while one internship is good, two or three are even better.


Academic Internship Process

During the internship semester, your site supervisor will mentor, guide and evaluate your learning and performance in the professional environment. At the same time, you will engage in related academic assignments and reflection exercises designed by your internship professor to help you make meaning from the experience. Through an academic internship, you will deepen your interest in your field of study and create a pathway for reaching your goals.

Juniors, seniors and graduate students can do internships for credit, but no matter what your year, we encourage you to meet with us to explore internships, volunteer opportunities and other experiences to enhance your Regis education and lay the foundation for your future.
