Thank you for your interest in hiring a Coastal Carolina University intern! Our students complete internships in the fall, spring and summer semesters.
As an internship sponsor, your organization agrees to provide a safe, structured, supervised environment where students can flourish, develop real-world experience and help your organization move forward in its daily functioning or special projects. Most interns enrolled in an academic internship credit at CCU are eligible to be paid as well.
