Take your classroom experience to the next level by interning with a government, nonprofit or business. Earn academic credit while you’re at it, too.
The Wilder School encourages students to participate in for-credit, structured and supervised internships with government, nonprofit and business organizations. Internships provide students with experience in a professional setting outside the classroom and enrich the learning process by supplementing theory with practice.
