ROSELLE PARK, NJ - Nearly 200 students from Bloomsburg University recently completed academic internships during the 2019 fall and winter sessions.

A for-credit, academic internship must meet certain requirements set by academic departments and includes a formal agreement between the university and the internship site. Students work with a site supervisor and faculty advisor throughout the internship, gaining hands-on learning and practical experience for their future career. The National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE) reported in 2016 that 72.2% of paid interns with private, for-profit companies received a job offer, while only 36% of students with no internship experience did so.

Julia Nunes from Roselle Park is working toward a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and completed an academic internship with Central Columbia School District.
