Academic Internships: Applying classroom knowledge to the work place
Academic Internships at UC Riverside provides a variety of opportunities for eligible students to earn course credit for substantive internships associated with their academic and career goals. Since these programs are academic in nature, the Office of Student Engagement strives to facilitate partnerships that lead to tangible learning opportunities for students, and significance for our community partners.
The academic internship programs are not just designed to function as outlets to grow professionally within your career field, but are primarily organized to enhance academic learning. The educational value is exhibited through research, student learning objectives, professional and academic guidance from a faculty advisor and internship site supervisor, and the opportunity to successfully link theoretical knowledge from a class-room to real-world experiences.
