International Internships

International internships are a great way to gain job experience, professional skills training, and learn valuable intercultural communication skills.  The following options are available to Westminster undergraduates.

Summer International Internships

Westminster is partnering with IES Internships to offer full-time internship placements for the Summer 2018.  Students who are interested in applying for an internship will work collaboratively with the Office for Global Engagement, the Career Center, and IES.

Study Abroad + Internships

Students also have the option to complete a semester abroad program during Fall or Spring semester and an internship to that experience.  See of the Office for Global Engagement for more information on available options.

Independently Organized

Westminster students who have a contact overseas can work directly with the Career Center to arrange an international internship and earn Westminster credit.  It’s important to arrange everything in advance of the internship, as credit can never be awarded retroactively.

Engaging the World

Westminster students who successfully complete an international internship that has been approved in advance by the Office for Global Engagement and the Career Center can use that experience to fulfill the Engaging the World graduation requirement.  The internship class must be for a minimum of 3 credit hours, and the student must earn a grade of C- or better for the class.

Engaging the World – International Internship Stipend

The Office for Global Engagement is offering two $2500 stipends to Westminster students who complete an international internship during summer 2018. 

Application deadline: February 16, 2018
