Internship Opportunities in International Studies

Planning your career...

Internships provide opportunities for students to gain experience in a particular field, determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, or gain school credit. An internship may be either paid, unpaid or partially paid (in the form of a stipend). Internship positions are available from businesses, government agencies, non-profit groups, non-governmental organizations and education centers.

International Studies students are strongly encouraged to seek international internship opportunities, usually available during the summer. Your starting point should be the Fredonia Career Development Office, located in Gregory hall, 2nd floor.
