Internships are a key part of experiential education because they allow students to apply in real-world situations what they are learning in the classroom. When hiring, employers today frequently look to see whether students have internship experience. Internships are so important for a student’s learning, FSC guarantees an internship to its incoming freshmen.
The FSC Career Center helps students connect with companies looking for temporary help while providing students with practical experience.
Students can also pursue internships through their academic departments, which frequently have connections to related industries. In the fall 2012 semester, more than 125 FSC students held internships for academic credit.
