    Q: Are internships paid or unpaid?
    A: Students tend to respond better to paid positions. About 2/3 of our internships are paid. Offering a paid internship tends to bring a more productive pool of applicants. For information on the Department of Labor's guidelines regarding internship programs and compensation, see the fact sheet.

    Q: Do internships count for academic credit?
    A: A student will decide whether or not to use an internship for academic credit. If the student is taking an internship for academic credit, they must complete a formal learning agreement, share it with their on-site supervisor, receive 3 basic evaluations from their site supervisor and meet regularly and receive an evaluation with a faculty member to make sure they are meeting their learning objectives. If you are supervising a Hamline intern visit the Employer Internship Guide page for more information.

    Q: Is it possible to present in a classroom?
    A: Generally, faculty members do not consider their class time to be appropriate for employer presentations. However, you can contact the Career Development Center at workshop@hamline.edu or 651-523-2302 to arrange your own information session.
