International internships can be obtained through one of Hollins University’s approved study abroad programs or through independently arranged opportunities. Like internships undertaken in the US, these opportunities are designed to help students get hands-on experiences in their fields of interest. Internships abroad, however, also allow participants to gain work-related skills in a global context. These internship opportunities often lead to graduate school and job opportunities.
