Semester Plus Internships: The Umbra Institute

Image result for internships

Internships allow students to enhance their academic studies through real world experience. The Umbra Institute offers students and young professionals the opportunity to work at the Institute as a students services team member focusing a portion of their work on the functional areas of their choice, including:

  • Hospitality, Event Planning, Incoming Services
  • Educational Programming: Community Engagement
  • Photography & Visual Communications
  • Social Media, Marketing & Digital Communications

Students interested in pursuing an internship while at the Umbra Institute must submit an inquiry several months before their arrival. This is necessary so that we can assess the applicants skill set, and complete the paperwork required by Italy for internships. This includes developing an outline for the internship that summarizes the project, learning objectives and outcomes, and identifies methods of assessment. This work needs to be completed prior to your arrival in Italy so it is imperative that you contact the Umbra Institute Academic Director as early as possible to begin discussing your specific interests.

Student interns are assigned a faculty advisor and are required to meet with them regularly throughout the semester to monitor progress on meeting the requirements and learning objectives of the internship. Internships are assigned the appropriate disciplinary code, academic level, and number of credits based on their nature and scope.
