Hands-on learning through Internships

At Marian University, more than 95 percent of students gain valuable, applied experience in their chosen field of study. Internships are one way for students to gain experience before graduating. However, depending on your major, the hands-on experience that you will receive can take several forms:

  • Internships are offered for students in most majors. These experiences give students an opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in a real-world professional setting. Internship opportunities are posted on MARIANconnect.
  • Clinicals: Pre-established placements for students in Nursing, Education, and Social Work programs that may begin as early as sophomore year. Students have the opportunity to work in a variety of different settings to gain hands-on knowledge.
  • Research: This provides an opportunity to work on a collaborative project with a professor at Marian or another institution, or with a professional in a laboratory environment. Contact your faculty advisor for more information.
