Welcome to the Internships Community!

UNT’s Internship Program exists to assist students in obtaining high-quality internships prior to graduation. Through experiential education, valuable academic learning occurs outside the classroom.

The mission of the program is to develop well-prepared students who, through the benefits of experiential education, become the next generation of leaders for the global community. We feel strongly that when students gain real-world experience in their field of study, they excel academically, as well as professionally.

Get Hands-On Experience Before You Graduate
Employers prefer to hire graduates with hands-on experience in their majors. You can gain practical experience and enhance your classroom learning through an internship. In addition to providing insight into your future career, working as an intern will give you a competitive advantage in the job market because of the skills you have developed while in the position.

We can help you obtain high quality internships prior to graduation. We work closely with potential and existing employers to promote internships within their organizations. We have successfully increased the quality and quantity of these experiences for our students.

Internships are work experiences (typically one semester) related to your field of study with an emphasis on “on-the-job” training rather than merely employment.

The benefits of internships are:

  • they extend your classroom learning into a real-world setting
  • they provide you opportunities to reinforce your choice of major and career path
  • they allow you to obtain transferable skills by working in a professional environment
  • they help you create a valuable network of contacts within your industry

Although some internships are unpaid, our program strives to promote paid opportunities. Some degree programs require students to fulfill an internship as part of their course work. Our office can help you in those situations, too.

Intern Abroad
In addition to local internships, there are opportunities for students to participate in internships abroad. Keep in mind that while these are great opportunities, there are more costs involved (airfare, fees for collaborating agencies, room & board, etc) than a typical internship and credit may not be available.

To view the available international internships, log in to your Eagle Network account and go to Search Jobs. Click on the International Internships position type and start your search.

These positions are made available with the help of UNT’s Study Abroad Office.

International Students
International students are eligible to work off campus in an internship or co-op, as long as they have filed the necessary CPT paperwork and received work authorization. Credit is one component of the process, which is where our office assists. All CPT-related questions should be directed to International Student and Scholar Services.

Each semester an international student is working off campus, they must fill out all paperwork (CPT and Request for Credit). Failure to do so can result in a loss of work authorization.
