Undergraduate Internship Program

Internships are a great way to build experience, put theory into practice, network, and begin building your career. 

About Internships

Internships are typically one-time work or service experiences related to a student’s major or career goal. The internship usually allows a student to work in a professional setting under the supervision and monitoring of practicing professionals. Internships can be paid or unpaid and the student may or may not receive academic credit for performing the internships. Completing an internship is one of the best career development experiences for an undergraduate student prior to graduation. Please contact the CRC Undergraduate Internship Coordinator to get started. 

Internship Structure: What to Expect

Saint Louis University interns are expected to behave in a professional and ethical manner at all times on an internship site.

Securing an internship typically follows these steps:

  1. Meeting with the CRC Internship Coordinator to discuss internship goals and opportunities. 
  2. Responding to employer internship postings or contacting employers to learn if they may offer an internship opportunity that you can pursue. 
  3. Formulating an agreement with the Internship Site Supervisor regarding work objectives and performance expectations and with his/her assigned Faculty Sponsor once an Intern has chosen an internship site; evaluations will be completed at mid-term and final at which time a grade will be assigned. 
  4. Working an average of 15-20 hours per week at the internship site during a fall or spring semester or 40 hours per week during the summer semester.
  5. Earning up to three hours of credit when internships are formalized through the Internship Coordinator (See Eligibility Requirements); receiving monetary compensation for some internships.
