Not Your Ordinary Internship

SIT offers 4- to 6-week, for-credit internships abroad in approximately 40 locations in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and has broad networks in nonprofit, private, and government sectors. Whatever your interests and goals, we have the right internship for you.

You’ll get real-world, on-the-ground experience in an international workplace. You’ll enhance your skills and become part of the wide network of community organizations, activists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and academics connected to SIT programs.

Build your résumé

Get a head start on your career. Gain hands-on experience, develop new skills, and start building a global professional network.

Put your learning into practice

SIT internships connect with a critical global issue. You will examine an issue through coursework and excursions; then you’ll do a real-world internship in that area.

Reflect on your experience

You’ll have reflective discussions throughout your internship to gain a deeper understanding of local realities and diverse worldviews.

Give back

An internship lets you give back to the host community who shared so much with you.
