An internship is an opportunity to integrate career related experience into an undergraduate and/or graduate education by participating in planned, supervised work. Internships are an initiative at Lynn University to support and prepare students for their prospective careers and life after Lynn. The program is designed to help students realize their full potential by identifying their areas of strength and development needs. The program builds on those strengths and addresses development needs by providing the necessary tools and resources to turn development areas into opportunities for growth, and areas of strength into competitive advantages which ultimately serve them in the job market post-graduation.

Internship requirements vary by college or major within the university. In general, however, students who wish to register for an internship must:

  • Meet with the Internship Coordinator in the Hannifan Center for Career Connections.
  • If an F-1 international student, see the Designated School Official (DSO) at the International Student Services Office for authorization of Curricular Practical Training (CPT). The F-1 student may not begin the internship until the student sees the DSO and receives the DSO’s CPT approval.
