Step 4: Consider applying for an internship to gain practical experience in your field of interest. For more information, read the information below underneath the Internship/Employment Services heading.
Internships provide students with the opportunity to link theory with practice, which improves learning and retention. Internships also provide students with valuable work experience within their chosen field, which improves post-graduate employment prospects dramatically. Consequently, Wall College students are strongly encouraged to complete an internship during their tenure at Coastal Carolina University. The resort tourism management and Professional Golf Management (PGM) programs require multiple internships, which leads to exceptionally high levels of career-oriented employment for graduates of these programs.
