Liberal arts majors are especially well-suited for internships given the shared emphasis across the humanities on acquiring a dynamic skills-set that embraces and engages complexity in all of its forms.
What are the benefits?
Bridge the gap between your undergraduate education and future career path(s)
Gain real-world professional experience and meet mentors
Connect what you have learned in the classroom to your life beyond SU
“Former business executive Jack Welch once said, ‘Control your own destiny or someone else will.’ This statement stuck with me during and after my internship with Lindenmeyr Munroe. I realized that it was up to me to pursue my career aspirations rather than letting someone control my future.” ~ Michael Piccirilli: Lindenmeyr Munroe Intern (Hanover, MD)
