UMBC's location near the Baltimore-Washington DC corridor provides numerous opportunities for access to government and national non-profit internship experiences. Sondheim Scholars use internships to explore career interests, to extend their personal networks, to learn about the real-world application of ideas, and last but not least, to make a difference.
Students typically find the most effective internships to be those that are connected to academic material and that are carefully mentored by a professor and a supervisor at the internship. Many departments on campus provide internship placements connected to coursework, and UMBC’s Shriver Center connects students to internships, many times paid or connected to course credit.
