Internships for Credit

The Marketing Department offers two for-credit internship programs: Professional Sales and Marketing.

These internships are designed to provide students with professional experience in the world of sales or marketing, build valuable professional relationships, and open the door for future employment opportunities. Internship courses are offered during Summer session, Fall semester, and Winter intersession, with field work usually completed in the summer before senior year or the winter before the student’s last semester.
