Creating an Internship

Develop Your Program

Internships are experiential learning opportunities that occur in workplace environments and can be a critical component of a college education. They differ from jobs in that internships must have an intentional and significant focus on student learning, a defined beginning and end date, and a focus on defined projects rather than routine operations.

We encourage you explore our resources on this page about how to create and structure your internship program. Feel free to contact us directly with questions about recruiting UW students for your internships and how we can help.
