The Internship Program offers services to students seeking an internship placement.  Our orientation will introduce students to internship search skills, resumes, cover letters, and interviewing.  We have a comprehensive database of local internshippositions for most majors on campus.  Internship positions can be in large corporations, small businesses, government offices, and nonprofit agencies. 

Internships can be paid or unpaid and can typically be done for academic credit.  Policies and eligibility for credit vary by department so students should check with the Internship Program for details.   An internship coordinator will guide students through the process of creating a learning agreement, getting departmental approval and getting registered for the credit.  Many internships are part-time, allowing students to simultaneously attend school.

An internship is an opportunity to integrate career related experience into an undergraduate education by participating in planned, supervised work. 

  • Interns gain valuable job experience related to their major
  • Students with internships enhance their marketability with employers
  • Students with internships can better relate their coursework to a professional setting
  • Internships help students make realistic career decisions
  • Internship supervisors can provide students with recommendations for graduate school or future jobs
  • Paid internships help student earn money to help defray college expenses
  • Interns can sometimes receive academic credit toward their degree

Most EAS Majors require students to complete a 3 credit internship. However, this may vary depending on your catalog year. Please visit with an EAS Advisor or review your major requirements in the MSU Denver Catalog before you consider signing up for an internship.
