You've heard how important internships are, and you know you need professional experience—but you have to balance other obligations. The MHWPC can help provide the flexibility you need! We support three types of on- or off-campus internships, which would otherwise be unpaid:

  • Full internships (hours required by a specific department for course credit, full semester)
  • Mini-internships (approx. 4-6 hours per week, full semester)
  • Micro-internships (project-based with defined parameters and start/end dates)
