Real Life Experience -- Real Life Benefits

Internships are an excellent way to enhance your in-class learning with hands-on, experiential learning with a company or organization that relates directly to your career goals.

While the NMU Career Services Office does not award academic credit for internships earned (you need to work with your academic department in order to earn credit towards your degree), the center does post internship opportunities with companies, government agencies and non-profit organizations.

To begin your search, Log into MyNMU and click on Handshake under Student Services tab.  Once you find an internship, contact your academic department to explore the possibility of earning academic credit.
