At Elmira College, you'll be required to complete an internship before graduation. It is possible to accomplish this through an internal research internship. For example, one recent student intern completed an archival project, gathering interview data from members of the EC community during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Another recent intern prepared an extensively researched proposal to improve campus accessibility for transgender students and those with a range of physical abilities. Many of our majors also complete internships in the fields of criminal justice, human services, law, activism and advocacy, community organizations and businesses, and museums. We will work with you to help find an internship that is right for you.
