Explore Your Opportunities

There’s no better way to prepare for a successful career than to participate in an internship.

Internships allow you to test the waters of your chosen field in a real life work setting. No matter where you choose to complete your internship, you’ll walk away from the experience with new skills, industry experience, and viable references.

At Villa, internships are a pass/fail course – even though they are typically completed off campus. Internships are credit bearing and are a required component of most academic programs. As such, the internship experience is broken down into four steps: preparation, placement, learning experience and evaluation.
