Internship Process

AMS 4950 Professional Internship Senior Experience

The AMS Internship program has been designed to help you connect the knowledge and skills you have learned in the classroom with the demands of real-world employers. The internship is a unique opportunity for you to gain valuable work experience while receiving school credit towards graduation. If you wish to do an internship at a site where you are currently employed, the AMS Internship must differ from your normal work activities and you must complete a project above and beyond your usual job responsibilities.

An internship is meant to be a learning experience over a period of time, typically over an entire semester. It is important to plan ahead and work towards securing an internship starting 4-6 months before the semester in which you want to do the internship. AMSI highly encourages each student to plan to complete an internship over a semester period in order to achieve the full work experience. It isn’t just about the number of hours you work; it should be a meaningful experience that exposes you to the industry in which you would like to enter for your career.
