Heidelberg University is committed to the principle that student internships involving practical, real-world work experience can represent a valuable part of the collegiate experience. Faculty members supervise and help to arrange a broad range of intern experiences in various settings: business and arts organizations, government agencies, communications media, and public interest groups. Students are sometimes offered full-time employment as a direct result of an internship experience.
Heidelberg University's Undergraduate Internship Program provides junior and senior level students in good academic standing the opportunity to obtain practical on-the-job experience while earning up to 15 hours of academic credit. Detailed guidelines are available in the Heidelberg Undergraduate Internship Program Handbook. When you are ready to register for your internship, download and complete a copy of the Internship Learning Contract, then submit the form to the OACSC.
