Internships

Completing an internship can be an important step in the career search process. The hands-on experience and job knowledge a student gains through an internship will play a major role in helping him or her make an informed career choice. At Dominican, internships are considered to be primarily an academic experience and available to students in any major. Students must complete and submit an internship application prior to the start of the internship experience.
