Internships and Experiential Learning

Internships provide an educational experience where students can learn, grow, and contribute in a professional setting all at the same time. Tremendous opportunities are available to all Truman students through internships, usually in their junior and senior years.

Some internships might be paid or unpaid, part-time or full-time, taken for credit or no credit. And internship opportunities can be local, national, or abroad.

For non-University sponsored internships, many of our departments have a coordinator who can help students locate an internship. The Career Center consults many students interested in finding internships and offers helpful resources. And some students take the initiative to pursue their own internship opportunities.

Some of our Truman-sponsored internships include:

I can honestly say that Truman’s academic excellence got me to where I am today and I wouldn’t change a thing. The HES program even helped me to fulfill my desire to complete a medical internship abroad. Truman’s HES program truly invests in their students. My time at Truman will forever be some of the best years of my life!
