I have not experienced an intership yet, but the school and academic advisors do their best to help students find the perfect internship! I have no worries or concerns about getting an intership when needed. Career services offered on campus provides assistance with interviews and resumes.

Great Program – I am very satisfied with my education so far and I look forward to continuing my education and going on to graduate level work! The professors make it so interesting and are very passionate about what they do, and that alone helps me stay engaged. They are all also very knowledgeable in the specific area they are teaching. The workload is not exactly a breeze, it requires a lot of reading and writing but it's never boring.
