Why hire a Monmouth College intern?
Monmouth College has been linking liberal arts education with internships and other real-world experiences for over 75 years. Monmouth’s internship program continues to provide employers with first-rate students spanning the liberal arts.
76% of the class of 2014 reported completing at least one internship by the time they graduated, and some completed two or more. This is significantly higher than the 63.2% nationally as reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). These internships complement the students' educational experiences by enabling them to apply the lessons they have learned in the classroom to day-to-day realities of the working world.
Internships are available for every major and during every semester – winter, spring, summer and fall. Students may earn academic credit for most internship experiences. We also have students who seek non-credit internships. The WCLC works hard to tailor each student’s internship experiences to his or her particular academic interest and career goals.
