Academic Internships for Undergraduate Students in the Arts and Sciences

Internships are one of the best ways to explore your passions, purpose, strengths, and values—in other words, academic internships give you a chance to Do What Matters. An internship includes several key elements: real-world experience, authentic work, mentoring relationships, enhanced skillsets, and a growing professional network. 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.

Some programs of study require an internship, Regis encourages all students to seek an internship before they graduate. And while one internship is good, research shows that two or three are even better!

What Students are Saying about their Internship:

“I have learned to utilize new resources that I have never (and probably will never, if not for this opportunity) tried before in order to adapt and improve my performance to match the pace that my co-workers are going at. I've also developed an appreciation for the diversity in background and experience of everyone I've been working with.”

-Biochemistry major, National Renewable Energy Lab

“I got to work with great people in an environment that encouraged hands on learning without the fear of failure. I feel that it has made me a more confident scientist while also giving me insight into research which may now be a part of my future.”

-Neuroscience major, Neurology Department, CU Anschutz Medical Campus

“I feel like I am genuinely making a difference and helping someone who truly needs it, as well as serving the community by supporting an issue that is very pressing.”

-Peace and Justice Studies major, Reaching Everyone Preventing Suicide
