The Tusculum Office of Career Services is available to assist students in finding and applying to internships.

Tusculum faculty advise all academic internships for college credit, whether those internships are paid or unpaid.  

Non-academic internships are not supervised by Tusculum faculty or staff.  Although employers may offer internships which do not require academic credit, Tusculum considers them to be temporary employment, whether paid or unpaid.
