We Change Lives

Internships are a great way for students to get hands-on experience in their field of study under the supervision of an experienced professional. Internships can be on or off campus, paid or unpaid and typically last one semester, though many students participate in multiple internships over the course of their educational career.

Internships offer opportunities to network with industry professionals, receive on-the-job training and graduate with work experience, and are a great way to start building your resume before you enter the workforce. Many McNeese interns are able to translate their internship experiences into full-time employment after graduation.

Academic Credit

Students in every major are eligible for internships, and most internships offered through McNeese qualify for academic credit, as long as they are related to your field of study. To find out more about available internships, eligibility requirements, tuition costs and how to enroll in internship courses, contact your college’s Internship Coordinator or the Career and Student Development Center.
