Internships give economics majors an opportunity to polish the critical thinking, analytical, and communication skills they develop during their studies here and apply them in a professional setting. Internships are also a valuable way for students to explore various career options and build their professional networks.
Recent internships include Target, Goldman Sachs, Boston Consulting Group, and more.
Rising sophomores and juniors have access to special funding from the Arts and Letters Summer Internship Program to help defray expenses. Internships may be paid or unpaid—and in any industry or geographic location.
Since 2010, the Arts and Letters Summer Internship Program has given more than $600,000 in support more than 250 students interning around the world.
To apply for funding assistance, students must first secure an internship. The Career Center offers many resources to help students find and apply for internships in a wide range of industries.
