Internship for Academic Credit Program

Summer application is open now through May 19. All applications MUST be submitted one week prior to the start of the internship.

What is an Academic Internship at Clark?

An academic internship is a credit-bearing, career-related work experience of limited duration in which an individual takes on responsible roles outside of the traditional university environment. Academic internships may take place in a non-profit organization, government office, or for-profit business. Depending on the employer, some internships are paid. Internships include mentoring and supervision by a professional in the field - this valuable form of training allows students to explore their career interests.

Rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors may earn academic credit for internships during the fall, spring or summer terms. 

Note: Graduate students do not use this application process; instead, they work with their academic departments to obtain credit.
