Internships provide a forum for the integration of classroom theory and business reality through career-related work experiences. There are two types of internships: those associated with an academic department in the WCB (For-Credit) or done independently (Not-for-Credit). Regardless of credit status, the majority of internships are paid.
The WCB Internship Program is novel in that:
- an internship experience can begin at any time during Xavier's three semesters,
- positions can be part time or full time,
- positions are competitively filled through student applications and employer reviews, and
- any position can continue beyond the internship period, if desired by both the student and the employer.
