At Bryant, students get comprehensive assistance finding the right professional opportunities, from internships to networking events to advisorships — to finding their major and very first job.
Over 90% of our students engage in experiential learning opportunities, 80% of which are internships. They're eager to test their skills and knowledge in a professional environment, and enthusiastic about finding a career that matches their aspirations and abilities. They also value the industry relationships and full-time employment that internships can bring.
Our Amica Center for Career Education can help pair you with a company that aligns with your career goals, whether you're seeking a for-credit or a non-credit internship, paid or unpaid. Our faculty can also guide you toward a for-credit internship and will provide coaching during the experience. Many students elect to combine an internship with study abroad.
If you choose to pursue an unpaid or low-paying summer internship, you might qualify for a Summer Internship Fellowship. These scholarships enable about a dozen students to pursue top-tier internships that provide only a small stipend or are unpaid.
From for-profit to non-profit organizations, Fortune 500 companies to world-class museums, here you'll have access to a range of opportunities and connections that will help you prepare for what's next.
Through our mentoring faculty, innovative programs and curricula, and career strategies offered by the Amica Center, we aim to guide every student to find the intersection of their passion, strengths, and interests—and the complementary credentials.
