“In my first two years at La Salle, I interned for the mayor, a state senator, and eventually the presidential campaign. All three were great ways to explore politics on every level.”
–Kimberly Lyons, political science major
Internships complement the theoretical foundation and the practical, hands-on learning experiences offered in students’ courses. Through internships, students have the opportunity to explore potential careers, acquire real-world, professional experience, make contacts and build relationships, and clarify their future goals and aspirations. With its prime location in the Delaware Valley, a hub for so many industries and organizations, La Salle is able to offer internship opportunities to students in every major.
Internships can be taken for course credit or for no credit, and they can be paid or unpaid.
In recent years, students have acquired internships with many noteworthy organizations, including:
