Internships & Experience

Build a Resume that Rocks

Nothing makes a résumé shine like professional experience. From the Metropolitan Opera to the American Red Cross, PricewaterhouseCoopers to the Massachusetts State Police Lab, Western New England connects our students to internships that help them explore career paths, apply classroom theory, and above all, make vital professional connections to launch their careers.

Western New England University's network exceeds 1,000 businesses and organizations. Other experiential learning opportunities include student teaching for Education majors and Senior Design projects for Engineering Students. These experiences allow students to apply the skills they've learned in the classroom in a professional setting and take a test drive of their future career. Working side by side with future colleagues gives students valuable insights and answers to questions not found in a textbook.

Internship Features and Requirements:

  • Compensated and non-compensated work-for-credit (3 credits) programs are available to juniors or seniors in a variety of majors.
  • Participating students must have a GPA of 2.5 or better.
  • 120 hours per semester is required.
