Internships are a way for students to gain valuable work experience and explore career paths in jobs related to their major. Several majors require an internship and students can choose to do additional internships as an elective. Finding an internship can be accomplished on your own, through the faculty internship advisor, or through the Center for Vocation and Professional Development.
Experiential Learning is an essential part of education at Concordia. Internships are a highly sought after and promoted. Over 50% of Concordia's degree programs that offer an internship course require it as part of the major.

While schedules may vary depending on the employer and student, there are a certain amount of hours required to obtain credit for an internship. An internship usually takes place over a fall, spring, or summer semester; and often students can complete the required hours during the summer semester in less time.
