Most internships are temporary assignments that last approximately three months up to a year.
An internship is any career-related experience that enhances a student's understanding of his or her career field of choice while offering a directed learning component to the experience. All majors are strongly encouraged to gain career experience in their field of interest prior to graduation.
The internship may or may not be for academic credit (that is strictly determined by each academic department—see your advisor). Some internships are paid and some are not. Some are full-time positions for a semester, two semesters or even a full year, while others are part-time and take place concurrently while the student is enrolled in other classes.
