Internships

Gain international work experience while studying abroad. Internships in the fields of art, business, community services, data collection, government, education, public relations, and health have all been taken in recent years by UCEAP students. A limited number of internships is available, so it’s important to identify an alternative course in case you don’t get an internship.
