All Chatham undergraduate students are required to complete an internship to graduate. Completing an internship abroad is a fantastic way for students to get practical experience in a field of interest as well as exposure to the international working world.
Internships abroad can be in person or virtual opportunities. In person opportunities are often completed in combination with study abroad coursework. Due to uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and travel safety, Chatham will announce in January 2021 if it will allow students to study abroad on traditional mobility programs for summer 2021. Virtual opportunities are an alternative offering the opportunity to collaborate and work globally without travel.
Chatham undergraduate students may use their $1200 study abroad voucher toward any credit bearing international experience, including an in person or virtual international internship. Students completing an International Studies Certificate may be eligible for an additional $1800 toward study or internship abroad.
To receive academic credit for your internship, you must complete two documents – 1) a Learning Agreement through the Office of Career Development (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org) and 2) Chatham’s study abroad application (contact email@example.com with any questions).
