Internships Overview

How it works –

  • Career Programs collaborates with faculty for academic oversight;
  • Career Programs networks with local community and alumni employers to develop opportunities;
  • Students work with Career Programs to create a unique internship position.

Internships for academic credit are arranged with Office of Career Programs and Student Development, the student, and the applicable academic department.

  • Presbyterian College is one of the only two SC Colleges who are Member Schools for the Washington Semester Program through American University, providing students the opportunity to spend a semester in Washington, DC, while completing a related internship. See their website for complete details. Students wishing to participate in this program should meet with Lynn Downie to learn the application and approval process and deadlines.
  • Our office will work with students to explore other semester-away or summer-long options for their internship experience. Such programs include the Disney College program, the Mayo Clinic summer research program, NASA’s internship program (year-round), or other similar programs.

*PC does not offer a Co-op program. Students in Education Majors may complete practicums and student teaching for their experiential component.
