Internships are a key component of many Northwestern programs. Students are able to transform the knowledge and insights from the classroom into valuable work experience.
Our Career Development office helps to connect students with businesses, organizations, and alumni to create valuable internship experiences. Our professors often use their professional networks and experience to connect students with internship opportunities.
Of our 65+ undergraduate majors, more than 80% require at least one internship to graduate. With optional extended semesters, Northwestern's interns may use extended semesters to accommodate employers' timelines while also meeting academic requirements.
Our Career Development team works with our employer partners to assist students in finding internships that prepare them with practical skills beyond their classroom work.
