Internship Services

Internships are considered part of the academic learning process for many majors at Walla Walla University. An experiential learning experience is a great way to develop specific skills and knowledge, as well as make contacts and build confidence. Employers often assess the skills and abilities of prospective employees by evaluating their previous experiences. If you pursue career-related opportunities prior to graduation, you will have an edge over other candidates in a competitive job market.
