INTERNSHIPS: How We Can Assist Departments, Faculty and Staff
The UNT Internship Program assists students in obtaining high-quality internships prior to graduation and works closely with employers to develop internships within their organizations. In some cases, experiential education is known as a co-op or practicum. Regardless of what the experience is called, students gain valuable academic learning 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.

The UNT Career Center is here to assist you with any or all of the following:
- Developing internships for your students.
- Assisting in the creation of internship course syllabi.
- Following up on employer leads you provide us.
- Working with employers to create meaningful job descriptions.
- Advising students about the internship process.
- Maintaining internship postings on Handshake.
- Facilitating departmental approval through Handshake.
- Troubleshooting internship issues between students and employers.
- Coordinating student and employer evaluations.
- Conducting employer check-ins/site visits.
- Offering workshops and class presentations on internships.
- Maintaining records on current and former interns by major and semester.
Here is the benefit for you: The Career Center can transfer the existing data faculty and staff already have concerning internships and retroactively add it to the Handshake system so there is a single repository of internship data. This allows faculty and staff the freedom to not have to worry about storing student information in a secure location while still having access to the data when it’s needed.
We look forward to building a strong internship partnership with you and your department!
