Internships and Field Experiences

Elmhurst’s 30-year-old internship program offers unusually varied and numerous opportunities to gain on-the-job experience—and course credit.

Elmhurst has extensive ties to the business community in the Chicago area and the world. Internships provide course credit of .50 to 1.5 courses.

Field experiences provide concentrated on-the-job training and course credit during January term. For a co-op experience, students may do multiple internships in the same company or with different companies, paralleling what they are learning in their courses.
