Internships give students hands-on training in their chosen fields.
One of the best ways to learn is by doing. To truly master a discipline, students need the opportunity to take what that they've learned in the classroom and use it in a real-world setting. That's why internships are an integral part of a BYU-Idaho education. BYU-Idaho is one of the largest intern-providing institutions in the nation, with students fanning out across the globe each semester to work with internship providers and gain practical experience.
These hands-on opportunities enable students to receive valuable work experience with qualified professionals. Once students see how a company operates and what is required to succeed in their field, they gain a practical view of their career choice. Statistics show that nearly 50 percent of students receive a job offer at the completion of their internship.
Many employers seek out BYU-Idaho students because of their strong work ethic, creativity, and professional demeanor. Internship providers are also eager to work with BYU-Idaho students because they are available year round, thanks to the university's unique Three-Track System.
