Internships allow you to engage in real-world learning and prepare for life after college. Through an internship, you can apply classroom knowledge in a professional environment, test career goals, gain practical work experience, and develop industry contacts.
While you’re free to find an internship on your own, Luther provides lots of support for students who want to intern. We host a number of career fairs where you can network with companies offering internships, and each year Luther alumni recruit current Luther students for internships at their organizations, particularly during J-term.
You can often earn academic credit for participating in an internship, and several Luther and Luther-affiliated study-away programs, such as the Washington Semester and the ACM Chicago program, offer internships as part of the experience.
