Bryant University offers eligible juniors and seniors an opportunity to earn academic credit by combining significant work experience with academic study. Such opportunities recognize the value of work experience and critical reflection as an important avenue for learning. Internships and practicum are approved by the Academic Department Chairpersons with organizations representing a variety of industries and career opportunities.

Types of Internships

The advantages of an academic internship:

* career-related employment that complements current academic studies
* opportunity to investigate a career field of interest
* valuable work experience
* a professional network and possible mentors
* 3 credits supervised and graded by a Bryant University faculty member

An academic internship (Course code: 391 or 491) is a three credit elective course in either a concentration, minor or general business area of study which provides a professional work experience. A faculty supervisor will create an academic learning assignment with the student, monitor the internship, and assign a grade.

A general business practicum (Course code: BUS491) provides eligible seniors the opportunity to work and study in a business, educational, or private institution, earning from six to nine credit hours, depending on the academic nature of the effort and time committed to the practicum. Students develop a major research project which is monitored by a faculty supervisor.
