Internships - Remote and In-person
Students are encouraged to participate in internships. An internship can help you to build your resume, make professional connections, and apply what you have learned in the classroom.
As WTU students typically have a full time load - completing 18 straight courses - those seeking internships usually organize for them to commence immediately after graduation. Alternatively, students may choose to take a break from classes to participate in an internship. Use these resources to locate internship opportunities:
