LAIB Internship Information

Resources for internships in LAIB

All LAIB majors are required to complete an internship of a minimum of 140 hours with an international company, either in the United States or abroad. These internship experiences give students the opportunity to apply classroom learning to the business/industrial work environment.

There are two steps to fulfilling the LAIB Internship Requirement: (1) complete an internship with an international company and (2) in the semester following the internship, write an 8-10 page research paper in the target language on the company where you worked

L&IH Internship Information

An internship of at least 135 contact hours and study abroad are mandatory. Both the internship and study abroad must be conducted in a target-language setting and selected from a list of L&IH pre-approved programs. Students may petition for L&IH approval of an alternate program by application; these are considered on a case-by-case basis (please contact Dr. Peebles: kpeeble@clemson.edu). 

Students should work closely with their academic advisor (Dingle, Peebles, or Zhang) to determine the best timing for their study & internship abroad.
