At CU Denver, the city is our classroom. We know that 80 percent of new college graduates have completed one or more internships and we want to make sure you can compete and succeed through the “internship advantage.” That’s why we work hard to connect you to real-world experiences that are relevant to your long-term career goals. Our students are awarded nearly 900 highly coveted internships around the country every year.
Once you decide to seek an internship, we’re with you every step of the way, helping you understand the importance of internships, define your qualifications, find opportunities on InternLink and apply. After students begin internships, we continue to mentor them to make sure they maximize the learning and professional experience—whether they are working at Disney or the Denver Botanic Gardens, Habitat for Humanity or History Colorado.
When students engage in experiential learning, they turn into accomplished professionals who are self-reliant, motivated and ready for the next challenge. At CU in the city, they learn with purpose on the job!
