My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“My group's Capstone was certainly a culmination of our learning experiences. We were able to apply what we'd learned from our classes, internships, and practical experience hours and tackle a problem on our own.”
John Bosse, Exercise & Sport Sciences

INTERNSHIPS

Internships are field experiences designed to provide a student learning opportunity under collaborative supervision between Colby-Sawyer College faculty, staff, and work site professionals. Internships offer the opportunity for students to enhance their academic programs with work experience related to career interests in all industry areas in national and international settings.

All students are required to complete at least one internship but opportunities exist for two or more internships for students who want to gain significant hands-on experience. Programs in education, athletic training and nursing have specific certification and accreditation requirements and related information can be found in each department.
