Advising Info

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 by a WWU faculty advisor who will determine how the internship will be evaluated and graded.
