During your junior year, you'll continue your career preparation. The content will be geared toward helping you to make strategic choices for your senior, semester-long internship and your future career. The semester-long internship will provide an opportunity for you to apply the academic knowledge you have gained through your studies in a real world setting.
The full-time, 14-week semester internship is the final field experience in our internship sequence. The semester-long internship can be completed either during spring of your junior year or fall of your senior year. We encourage student athletes who play fall semester sports to consider completing their semester-long internships during the spring of the junior year.
Our internship coordinators support you throughout the internship sequence. In addition to teaching the pre-internship seminars, they provide individual advising, networking support, and guidance on searching for opportunities.
While interning, you will work closely with your internship coordinator, faculty from your academic department, and your site supervisor to ensure you are developing relevant skills and are on track to meet your goals. At the completion of your internship, you will complete a senior thesis project that integrates your four years of academic study. These projects provide rich academic and professional content that will help you to further your knowledge in your career field.
Semester in the City
Semester in the City gives undergraduate students the opportunity to spend a semester in Boston learning hands-on through well-supported internships in the social sector. Participating students join as Social Innovation Fellows and participate in a transformative 15-week program that allows them to address current social issues while developing essential skills and networks that prepare them for life and work after graduation.
During their Semester in the City, Fellows will intern with a nonprofit, social mission business, or government agency for 30 hours per week. Fellows will gain work-based experience, allowing them to learn more about themselves and their passions while also building their skills and networks. They work with students to place them in an internship aligned with their interests, be it criminal justice reform, education, gender equality, environmental sustainability, or beyond. While every placement will be a little different, each Fellow will have a dedicated mentor to help them thrive.
Endicott students are currently interning at Charles River Watershed and Community Resources for Justice.
