The UM Internship Experience

The UM Internship Experience assists students with each step of securing real-world experiences at any location, in-person or remotely. All majors are welcome to apply. 

Students in the program are connected to a community of Ole Miss interns with similar professional aspirations and individualized support from professional staff. The Internship Experience incorporates internship exploration and preparation coursework that parallels academic major requirements.

The UM Internship Experience provides a summer cohort experience for Atlanta, New York, and Washington, DC.  Individual Internships can happen at any domestic, international, or remote location.
