Internship Resources

What is an internship?

To establish uniformity in the use and application of the term “internship,” Excelsior College, in conjunction with the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), uses the following definition:

An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.
