    Careers and Internships

    So you have a Hamline degree. Now what?

    Hamline provides all our students and alumni with the tools that they need to succeed after graduation.  A Hamline education will prepare you to make a living and make a difference in the world.

    • Undergraduates can use connections you made in your junior-year internship to find a full-time position, apply to graduate school after working one-on-one with a professor and presenting your own research, or forge your own path with the assistance of the Career Development Center.
    • Graduate students can further develop their resume and interview skills, access our Hamline Career Link job and internship database, and seek expert advise from our career professionals.
    • Law students can seek advice from licensed attorneys with practice experience, explore our Symplicity job database, and join HUSLink - a professional community of more than 240 advisors.

    Internships and career preparation

    The Career Development Center offers signature services for undergraduate and graduate students, like internships for credit and a practice interview program. They can also provide individual assistance on how to perfect your resume and cover letter, develop job/internship search skills, and more.

    Collaborative research

    Undergraduate students often collaborate with professors on research projects in Hamline's collaborative research program, or go on their own and present at the National Conference of Undergraduate Research. Collaborative research is a chance for students to hone their skills and beef up their resume.

    Graduation requirements

    The Hamline Plan, Hamline's nationally-recognized general education program, provides undergraduate students with a set of flexible, goal-oriented skills and experiences that prepare them to enter the workforce.

    These graduation requirements ensure that students have opportunities to conduct independent studies, participate in internships, and develop the cultural awareness and critical writing, speaking, and technology skills sought out by employers in all industries.
