Parsons Internship Program
An internship is an opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom in a professional context; discover which skills are transferable to new contexts; learn the practices and protocols of a particular employer and industry; reflect on the quality of their contribution to the organization; and refine their own career goals.
At Parsons, internships vary by major and program. View the Internship Guide for Students to find an internship, determine eligibility for an internship, and learn how to register for credit.
