Required internships deliver real-world experience before you graduate
At SPEA, most students are required to complete an internship as a part of your professional program. You’ll not only learn from some of the best faculty in SPEA, you’ll practice what you have learned in the real world.
You must register your internship before you start
SPEA policy states that your internship approval form MUST be submitted prior to counting any hours toward your requirement.
Internship registration and other forms required for your internship can be found on SPEACareers—log in is required. More information can be found in our internship guide. And, of course, if you have any questions, we’re here to help.Go to SPEACareers Contact us
