A non-credit internship is something you may do that is independent of your University coursework. It’s a great way to explore a career field, gain experience, learn about the inner workings of an office, choose a major, earn supplemental income, start networking, and build your résumé! These positions may help you gain a wealth of knowledge about working in the “real world.” We recommend all students complete multiple internships during their time at Marymount to build experience and build your resume.
Global Internship Opportunities
Students can choose to complete their internship requirement abroad or with an international company through the Global internship programs. Through these programs, you can go to a different country, immersing yourself in the culture while working. Students also have the option of completing a Virtual Global Internship where you work with a company or organization located in a different country from the comfort of your home. Students interested in these programs should set up an appointment with the Center for Global Education.
Service Learning / Volunteer Opportunities
Service-learning/volunteer opportunities are learning experiences usually working with nonprofit organizations within the community on a volunteer basis. Marymount University’s Saints Center for Service works with quite a few volunteer organizations in the local area, and students are encouraged to participate during their college career.
