Internships & Career Resources

EPS Career Seminars

Students are encouraged to attend one of our EPS Career Seminars, where alumni from our undergraduate and graduate programs talk about what they are currently working on, and their journey after leaving EPS.

EPS LinkedIn Group 

Our EPS LinkedIn group is a great resource for current students and alumni! There, alumni and faculty members regularly post opportunities that are relevant to our department. Please click here to join.


Student internships are available both in the summer and also during the semester. An internship is a wonderful and effective way to connect your academic experience with the professional work arena. It allows you to gain valuable exposure to the workplace, provides the opportunity for skill development, and gives you a competitive edge in the job search.
