Student Opportunities...

The Center regularly has various opportunities for student interns throughout the year, including the fall and spring semesters and winter and summer breaks. Internships at the Center for Health and Social Research give students a chance to gain real world experience by working on leading edge research projects with dedicated professionals from a range of disciplines. In addition to gaining great experience to compliment classroom learning, our internship opportunities allow students to improve their portfolio or resume. Interns have a first-hand opportunity to learn research and project operations and gain valuable experience with the most recent technologies.

"I would recommend an internship because it is a great way to transition successfully into the next phase of life. It provided valuable lessons and furthered me to graduation. Doing an internship was the best aspect of my last fall semester in school."

- Joelle Del Monte

"I always knew that internships would be a critical aspect of my education, but the rewards are greater than I thought they would be. Even before my internship was over I was offered a job to stay on at the Center."

- Lauren Galgovich
