Internships

Internships in a variety of fields such as journalism, business, finance, and marketing may be possible. Since an internship isn't built into the program, you will need to research your own opportunities to meet your interests and goals. 

Key Facts

  • Internships are optional
  • Internships may require an additional visa process

Language

You can intern in English, but proficiency in Chinese will broaden your internship options.

Academics

No course is required, but to receive academic credit you’ll have regular meetings with an internship supervisor and a final project or paper. You will receive detailed instructions on how to get credit for your internship after you apply to the program.

  • The internship can replace a course
  • Pass/no pass credit

Arrangements

To get an internship, you’ll make all of the arrangements yourself and submit a form for credit. You make most of the arrangements after arrival.
