What is an Internship?
An INTERNSHIP is relevant work experience related to your major or career interests. Internships can be full or part-time, short or long-term, paid or unpaid, for or not for credit, self-directed or led by a mentor, or any combination of the above. While there is no minimum or maximum length for an internship, it does ordinarily require a sustained commitment over a period of time such as a semester. This may occur during the fall, spring or summer sessions. At TSU, internships include traditional internships, cooperative education, practicum, clinical and student teaching experiences.
