Internship Program

The Importance of an internship

Undergraduate internship experience is a key factor in job marketability after graduation. According to the 2013 Job Outlook Report by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), 71% of employers prefer to hire a recent graduate who has had relevant work experience; 57% of those employers cite internship experience as their preference for work experience. The Internship Program at Curry College offers students the opportunity to explore a variety of career paths by learning about their interests, skills, strengths, and values while acquiring course credits. 

Internship Prerequisites

  • Successful completion of the course EXP 2340 Introduction to Experiential Learning with a minimum grade of 'C'
  • Cumulative minimum GPA of 2.75

Site Qualifications

Students are not limited to the opportunities sponsored by the Center for Career Development and are free to research additional internships on their own. All employer sites must meet a specific criteria in order to host an intern from Curry College. The following are the requirements/qualifications of a site:

  • Define intern role and responsibilities for specific projects and assignments
  • Provide students with an appropriate workspace and resources
  • Provide training and support throughout the semester
  • Identify an on-site supervisor for each intern
Please utilize the Curry College Internship Site Guide for additional information regarding requirements, roles, and responsibilities. 


Hours and Compensation

Students can earn credits depending upon the number of hours that they work. Internship employers have the option to determine whether the internship opportunity is eligible for compensation (this is not a requirement). *Curry College does not require that Internship Sites pay student interns. For-profit internship sites should review the Department of Labor's legal criteria for determining whether an internship needs to be a paid experience.
