The Global Education Office has partnered with World Endeavors to provide Mason students an internship experience in Jaipur, India. Unlike traditional study abroad programs focusing on one particular subject, internship programs include students from different majors, working and studying in the same location. The student’s internship placement within a company relative to their area of study defines their global work experience, and determines the internship course credit the student will receive. For example, a Bangkok internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in Marketing, Nonprofit Studies, Art and Visual Technology, Social Work, Tourism, Communication, Education Studies.
Internships and Placement
The internship component involves students working five days a week for two months at non-profit or for-profit organization. Once accepted by the Global Education Office internship program, students will work closely with a World Endeavors placement officer to identify areas of interest to secure an internship for their summer abroad. Students may inquire about the type of internship opportunities in their area of study as well as about the complete support services offered during the program to their Global Education Office Program Officer. Within your inquiry, please include your major, career goals, and what knowledge you wish to gain from the internship experience.
