USC Sumter Students

Interested in combining academics with work experience? Our internship programs aren't just a job experience; they are credit-bearing courses which will have you apply what you learn in the classroom to the workplace. You'll spend anywhere from 1 to 4 days per week in the workplace and take courses along with your internship. Most importantly, our experienced staff will work with you to define academic and professional goals and identify an internship which will help you realize those goals.

 

What's In it For Me?

Internships have come a long way. Some of the great benefits of an internship include:

  • Substance - if you do well, you may come away with work samples, recommendations and possibly a job offer at the conclusion of your internship

  • Academic Credit - Gain hands-on experience that directly relates to your course work

  • Mentorship - as an intern, you'll have the ability to seek out a mentor for advice and information regarding your field of interest
