Internships are an excellent way to acquire international work experience. This experience will increase your marketability when you graduate, and it will help you decide if the career that you are considering is a good fit for you. An internship will also allow you to apply what you have learned in your course work to the "real world," allow you to develop your job search skills, and help you acquire a network of contacts.
Starting in Fall 2012, International Studies will provide course credit through INT 498 for appropriate international internships. A foreign intership will most likely meet your international experience requirement.
For the 2011-2012 academic year, International Studies students are encouraged to contact Mark Werbeach in the UNCW Career Center to explore the possibilities of an international internships.
