About Career Exploration and the Internship Program:
Macalester’s Career Exploration offers programs, services and appointments in our office in Kagin Commons, in the Olin-Rice Hub, and across campus. Our staff provide tailored career exploration and preparation for students of all majors – and for those exploring them all. The Internships Program is an integral part of Career Exploration, and more broadly, contributes invaluable work-integrated learning to a student's Macalester College liberal arts education. Academic internships (internships registered for credit) are structured, off-campus, learning-work experiences that can take place in a wide range of community organizations in the Twin Cities and around the world. Internships help students integrate theory and knowledge gained in the classroom with real world applications to develop professional skills, increase confidence, and heighten career awareness. This past academic year, 334 students from 30 academic disciplines participated in credit-bearing internships in the fine arts, nonprofits, education, government, and business. Please review the 2019-20 Internship Site List for more information. Career Exploration also stewards the Macalester Summer Internship Grant. In summer 2021, 48 students were awarded the MSIG grant to complete invaluable, but unpaid internships in the Twin Cities and around the world. The Internships Program helps facilitate this process, enabling students to find, register, and successfully complete an internship. College is all about exploring possibilities, and internships are a great way to enhance knowledge, better understand interests, develop skills, and prepare for future careers.
