The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at NAU offers exciting internship opportunities for students. With an internship, students can gain on-the-job training and practical instruction in their chosen field. This is a great way to get a head start on your career while still in school.

Why is an internship valuable?

There are many benefits to participating in an internship, such as gaining work experience, creating a competitive edge in the job market, and networking in your future career. An internship is also a great way to decide if a particular field is the right fit for you and to apply classroom knowledge to the real world.

Internship requirements

Each department in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences has different minimum requirements for students to meet before they can apply for internship credit. Internships must be arranged the semester before you will be participating. Be sure to check with your department for deadlines and note that some internships may have additional requirements.
