EUS Internship Program

The EUS internship program provides students with experiential learning opportunities during the academic year and summer. The program aims to foster an understanding of how a liberal arts and sciences education applies to professional work, and provides students with a sense of career opportunities. An internship enhances student knowledge and skills development through a productive working experience with organizations in the Hudson valley, nationally and globally. Students formally present their work to EUS program faculty and students at the conclusion of the internship.
