Internships

About 75% of Rhodes students participate in internships.

There’s no better way to supplement your classroom knowledge and confirm your career direction than by working alongside professionals in your chosen field. You’ll connect your academic learning to situations in the working world, add to your resume and begin establishing a professional network.

We’ve partnered with over 100 local, national and international employers through the Academic Internships program and maintain a reputation for supplying capable, mature interns. There also are opportunities for paid internships and on-campus internships through the RSAP program.

Learn about more academic internship opportunities. Please keep in mind that these are all possible placements and are not guaranteed. Additionally, we have moved applications to be online through Qualtrics and will no longer accept paper applications.
