Explore Your Major


Internships are a great way to prepare for a new job or profession. MVNU encourages all students to prepare for and acquire field experience related to their majors and career goals.

Take advantage of field experience

Some MVNU majors include field placement as a component of the program of study. Other majors may provide academic credit for students who choose to participate in internships on their own. Your advisor can answer questions about how the process will work for your major, and whether an internship may be associated with course credit. With or without academic credit, an internship will provide valuable resume-building experience.

Finding the right internship

The MVNU Career Development office does not “place” students with any employers, but guides them in the process of preparing for, searching, and locating internship opportunities. Students must take initiative and ownership in acquiring an internship, and are hired on by employers based solely on their own merits.

Students who are not ready for taking on the responsibility of working as an intern will be advised on how to improve and develop themselves so they will provide a positive experience for employers associated with MVNU.
