Internships allow you to explore and apply academic theory in the professional world by combining learning and work experience. You get the opportunity to take the knowledge you have gained as a student and put it into action. At the same time you will develop new skills, explore possible career choices, and build a professional network.  Internships enhance your academic experience and can help narrow your focus for future studies.  They introduce you to new fields, help you develop or improve skills, build your résumé, and can position you to network for future positions.
