Internship Listings

Internships involve placement of a UMF student in a community work setting.  Similar to apprenticeships for trade and vocational schools, internships can be thought of as a system to provide on-the-job training for professional careers. Internships may, at the discretion of faculty members and departments, carry academic credit.  Internships may also include financial compensation – they may be unpaid, paid, partially paid, or supported through awards or stipends.
