About Internships at UWRF

An internship is a carefully monitored work experience in which a student has intentional learning goals that enable him or her to apply their classroom knowledge to the workplace.

  • Interns typically receive compensation for their contributions.
  • Internships are part of UWRF’s educational program, and are carefully monitored and evaluated for academic credit. An essential aspect that distinguishes an internship from a short-term job is that learning goals and objectives are structured into the experience.
