Barrett students are encouraged to explore and engage in internship experiences to:

  • Gain hands-on experience in a professional setting
  • Meet and connect with those in your field - potential future employers, coworkers, etc.
  • Gain self-confidence, professional experience, and leadership skills

Students also have the opportunity to earn up to three upper-division honors credits during the fall or spring semesters for their internship experience. To learn more, please visit the Honors Credit page.

Barrett students have secured internships in the governor’s office, local congressional districts, and the United States Senate, as well as with Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Google, and The American Heart Institute.
