Rice students have a variety of internship opportunities from which to explore. Beyond Handshake and on-campus recruiting events, there are multiple internship focused programs on campus.
For students seeking additional structure and reflection surrounding an internship (and credit), see the CCD courses below. Note: students can get paid and receive credit.

This course is designed for currently enrolled undergraduate students to gain experience in a work place setting while earning course credit. The purpose is to supplement classroom learning, providing an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and further develop professional skills. Students enrolled in the course will meet individually with a career counselor to process their internship experience and discuss factors that affect career decision-making and satisfaction. The coursework will include completion of an action plan to prepare students to market their qualifications and internship experience to potential employers and graduate schools.
