Internship Opportunities

Internships are about more than building experience; they're where you can experiment and discover the career that's right for you.

As you set forth on your career path, Bucknell has experts and resources to help guide you.

We help our students explore their futures with internships both on campus and around the country, including options that give you hands-on working experience, networking and class credit.

When our students graduate from Bucknell, they enter the workforce not only prepared to succeed, but confident about the direction they've chosen.

Course Credit for Internships

It is possible for students to obtain credit for unpaid internships, either for .25 credits or 1.0 credits. Paid internships are not typically eligible for course credit. Earning credit for an internship requires advance planning and approval. In the case of a 1.0 credit internship, you must also work with a faculty adviser to devise an academic component for your internship, typically a journal, culminating paper or both. There are also fees associated with internships resulting in course credit.

To learn more about your options, please contact the dean's office of your college.
