What is an Internship?
An internship is a form of experiential learning, which offers you the opportunity to work in an entry-level, workplace-related position that relates to your major. It gives you a chance to gain valuable experience and make professional connections in your field. Internships can be paid or unpaid, and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate your talent.
While participating in an internship or work experience opportunity (job, volunteer position, paid or unpaid), you will also be enrolled in a Work Experience (WEXP) Course, in which you can earn 1-4 units of academic credit based on the hours of work you complete in a semester.
Orientation attendees will learn about the process of needing to have a job or internship to participate in the WEXP course. The orientation is a valuable way to learn more about Work Experience Courses and how they benefit working students.
For more information about WEXP, including eligibility requirements and contact information, download the WEXP information sheet.
Students have many opportunities to attend an orientation. To view orientation dates, times and locations, visit the SCC calendar.
