The internship program coordinated by the Career Services Office has been developed to assist students with the career decision-making process during matriculation at Howard University. Internships, also referred to as work-based learning, provide the opportunity for students to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to real-life work experiences that will assist with the careful selection of a viable profession upon graduation.
