Internships

Nearly forty years ago, Wells College recognized the need to link a liberal arts education to the real world.
Today, the Wells College Internship Program is widely known for the variety of placements as well as the quality of work its students produce.

The Wells College YouTube account has collected some examples of students' experiences in a variety of internships. Click to watch video interviews and hear more about the students' internships, academic interests, and other activities that they are involved with at Wells.

Academic credit is awarded for successfully completed internships, so students work with faculty in the Wells College majors and minors to set goals and learning objectives. Students of all class years may participate in the Internship Program, and internships are the most popular way to meet the Wells College Experiential Learning Requirement.

With the assistance of staff and faculty and a database of more than 1000 previously completed internships, students may choose a placement in their home communities or, if practical, another city, state, or country. Internships normally take place during the January Intersession and/or summer, but internships during a semester are also possible in nearby communities or on campus.

Internship sites for the nearly 200 internships completed during a recent academic year include public and private schools, history museums, art museums, federal, state and local governments, not-for-profits, environmental organizations, hospitals, veterinary clinics, theaters, and private businesses large and small in 22 states and 5 foreign countries. Many students have received job offers and graduate school acceptances because of the excellent and varied real world experiences gained through the Internship Program.
