Internships are strongly encouraged, and funding is available.

On campus, the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities offers research internships (Econometrics must be completed).

Off-campus, many employers visit campus to recruit for summer internships. The department announces these recruiting events throughout the semester. Check out the Meruelo Family Center for Career Development for opportunities.

Global Engagement Certificate

Notre Dame’s Global Engagement Certificate program rewards the learning and experiences students are already engaging in. It stands out on resumes and shows employers and graduate schools that you’re prepared to be a global citizen.

Students earn the certificate by taking two classes and participating in cultural activities on and off campus. You may already be well on your way to meeting the requirements.
