Internships & Externships
Exploring Career Fields
The Denison Internship Program, managed by the Knowlton Center for Career Exploration, provides students the opportunity to explore potential career pathways as they complete their academic coursework. Students may take advantage of internship opportunities beginning in their first year. Students may search for internship opportunities via the online portal, Handshake, or arrange internships independently through other avenues across the globe.
Through one-on-one appointments, programs, and various career events facilitated by the Knowlton Center, students can prepare early for internship opportunities to complement academic experiences. Internships play a pivotal role in helping students decide on a major, and the focus their career direction. The Knowlton Center offers resources to assist students in making these important decisions with developmental steps tailored to each year at Denison. Alumni and parents are excellent resources and post many positions in the Handshake portal.
Employers and graduate/professional schools appreciate viewing evidence of completed internships as they evaluate a student's accomplishments relevant to their applications. Career Exploration will notate the appropriate internship experiences on students’ transcripts once all relevant registration forms and evaluations are collected.
