Internships

Overview

Internships

Our school’s MLIS and MARA graduate students and Post-Master’s Certificate students are strongly encouraged to complete an internship (we offer on-site and virtual internship opportunities) and gain valuable real-world experience and course credit. Internship supervisors collaborate with our faculty to provide rich, structured field learning experiences for our students in a variety of professional settings. As interns gain new skills, explore career options, and expand their professional connections, they also participate in a two-way exchange of knowledge with their internship site. 

Students can browse or search for internship opportunities and site supervisors can update or create new listings in the Internship Sites Database.

MLIS and Post-Master’s Certificate students: Please go to the INFO 294 Student Handbook.

MARA students: Please go to the MARA 294 Student Handbook.

Employers: Please go to the Internship Site Supervisor Handbook.

If you have general internship questions, contact Dr. Linda Main, associate director.
