Alumni & Professional Engagement

The department of Alumni & Professional Engagement identifies BU partner organizations, executes affiliation agreements and promotes internship opportunities in collaboration with faculty advisors in all four colleges.

One way to show potential employers that you have real-world work experience and skills beyond your classroom learning is to complete an internship. You can earn credits toward graduation while gaining valuable work experience by completing an academic internship. Learn about for-credit internships by reviewing Frequently Asked Questions.

  • Schedule and meet with your faculty advisor to discuss your interest in completing a for-credit internship. Review eligibility and other specific department and university requirements with your advisor.
  • Create a professional resume. While not a requirement for all internships, it is helpful to submit a resume with your application.
