Internships and Career Placement for Music Students

Students can gather a wealth of knowledge from books, lectures, and guest speakers, but nothing completes and complements that knowledge like a job. Entering the workforce and assuming responsibilities helps students to mature as they develop skills and acumen and apply what they’ve learned in class.

The University of New Haven considers internships to be a critical component of the educational process. We strive to successfully match an intern with the most appropriate work environment. It’s also a given that all three parties in the relationship — UNH, the student, and the internship location — need to devote significant time to make it work. This balancing act, when achieved, results in a quality internship that can lead to developing a strong future employee. Numerous ways exist to develop and participate in an internship. Working through the internship coordinator, we make every effort to ensure the internship experience is a meaningful one.
