Internships are an integral part of the School of Urban Affairs experience and constitute the core of experiential learning. Every undergraduate student is required to complete an internship as part of their path to degree completion, and internship opportunities are available to all interested and eligible graduate students as well. The Center for Public and Nonprofit Management has provided 241 internships for School of Urban Affairs students over the past three years alone (2015-2018). These internships often result in a direct connection with not just a job, but a career with meaning.
The School of Urban Affairs has built a national reputation for academic excellence, and one way we uphold this reputation is by assisting our students in identifying opportunities to develop and refine competencies and create connections within their field of study. Upon graduation, our students have developed a portfolio that highlights their degree, specific industry competencies, and a network of professional connections to assist them in achieving their career aspirations.
