Internships at Lincoln College-Normal

An internship is a supervised educational experience in the workplace that allows students to apply classroom learning to real-world situations. Internships offer the opportunity to explore and clarify career choices, obtain career-related experience, develop professional skills, and make valuable contacts that can help students further their careers. Most students who have done internships agree that it was truly a transformative experience.

Lincoln College-Normal students are strongly encouraged to participate in an internship as a valuable part of their College experience and in preparation for their eventual job search or graduate school application. The Internship Office will work with all parties to facilitate this process and act as a liaison between student, internship site, and faculty sponsor.
