Approved internships provide students opportunities to apply classroom knowledge, skills and abilities into real-world experiences in a business, industry, service or government setting.

  1. Work with the internship coordinator to develop your internship opportunity in advance of the internship semester.
  2. Review the options below and additional information about SST internships on MyGGC (login required).

At the conclusion of internships, participants typically prepare reports and posters, summarizing their experiences to present at SST-sponsored events or off-campus academic conferences, or to publish in the appropriate literature.
