Internships

Fulfill your staffing needs, while gaining an introduction to new talent with a Lipscomb intern.  Our short-term internship programs offer students real world professional development through supervised learning opportunities.

Lipscomb students can choose from the following internship options: paid, unpaid, for academic credit or for experience only, while not gaining academic credit.  Students earning academic credit are required to pay for the hours earned.  For this reason, internships that are “unpaid and for credit only” receive the least amount of interest from students.

Before submitting your opportunity, please review the internship types and requirements for full details on the internships we offer.

Employers who host an intern receiving academic credit will be expected to establish learning objectives with the student, complete an initial performance review, and a final evaluation of the intern's performance.

Not all internships must be completed for academic credit if the student does not need the credit to graduate. In this case, the student would work for an organization as a part-time temporary employee. It is recommended that all of these types of positions be paid to meet government regulations for interns.

Email the position description and details to careerdevelopment@lipscomb.edu. It will be posted to Bison JobTrax where interested students can contact you directly.

We recognize this may be a new process for employers or that you have questions. We are happy to discuss your organization's individual situation.
