Find the internship that’s right for you

Internships offer a real-world setting for connecting academic learning with future goals. Experiential learning is vital part of the RMC experience, and required for many majors. 

Internships for academic credit

The Bassett Internship Program coordinates academic credit for qualifying internships completed by juniors and seniors. These 3-credit-hour internships require a minimum of 130 hours of paid or unpaid supervised work.

Why intern during college?

Internships allow students to:

  • Explore a career path before committing to it
  • Network, practice career skills, and expand learning beyond the classroom
  • Discover interests and capabilities, make confident choices about the future, and discover the right path for transition to career or graduate studies

Whichever internship you choose, the experience and life lessons you will gain are invaluable to your future.
