Internship Success Stories

Heather SharpThe Washington Center provides incredible opportunities to students and afforded me a life changing internship experience. As an intern at the American Council of Young Political Leaders, I was able to improve my professional and interpersonal skills, while meeting new people and introducing them to the American political landscape. The combination of my internship, my TWC activities, and my new acquaintences created an atmosphere that enabled me to gain confidence and direction for my studies, my career, and my life.

Helen Hardin Honors

Helen Hardin Honors Students

As academically talented students prepare to enter a highly competitive job market or apply to prestigious graduate programs, they realize that a high grade point average is not enough to guarantee a job after graduation or ensure admission to a graduate program. That is why the Helen Hardin Honors Program places a high value on experiential learning in the form of internships. 

Having career-related work experiences can give honors students a competitive advantage in the job market or enhance the quality of their graduate school candidacy.  All Hardin Honors Program students are strongly encouraged to pursue (paid or unpaid) internships to fulfill the Honors Experience requirement in their junior and senior years.

Honors students who plan to use an internship to fulfill the Honors Experience requirement must be enrolled in a credit-bearing internship course.  Students should submit the Honors Experience-Internship Option form to the Honors Office (105 Honors Hall) at the start of the experience and no later than the start of the second week of classes for the semester.
