For Faculty and Staff
Academic internships foster experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting. Students receiving academic credit for internships enroll in a course that grounds the experiential learning through the involvement of Loyola University Chicago. With community partner employers as coeducators, students in academic internship courses engage in real world professional experiences, allowing students to “learn by doing” and reflect upon that learning.
