An internship is any opportunity to gain exposure to a career field of interest, which are crucial in preparing for your post-Goucher plans.  They can be paid or unpaid, full-time or part-time, for academic credit or not, for a specific time period.

During an internship, students can:

  • Explore different industries and career interests
  • Gain experience and hone skills applicable in the workplace
  • Develop a network of professional contacts

The internship search websites we've pulled together include industry-specific opportunities, diverse internship programs as well as general search sites. You may want to pursue an internship for academic credit, in which case you will go through the process of submitting an Internship Learning Agreement (ILA). The CEO offers the Goucher Intern Fellowship to aid students in offsetting expenses for completing internships during the summer.  The CEO partners with the Office of Alumnae/i Affairs to offer micro-internships, short-term, paid virtual projects hosted by Goucher alumni.  If you're interested in pursuing an international internship, we have the policies you'll need to be aware of, and some suggested sites to begin your search for an international internship
