Virtual Global Internship*: Students complete an online internship with an internationally based placement (for credit, not for pay) that is usually accompanied by an “Internship Course” at part-time or full-time status. The course may include discussions on work-place differences and provide check-in opportunities with onsite professionals on projects to support your international work experience.
*Internship approval: Students need approval from a WWU faculty advisor who will determine how the internship will be evaluated.
After you decide on a program and the courses you will take abroad, you must complete the Departmental Academic Advising Esign Form with your advisor before your program commences.
Review Your Degree Works
