Internships and Career Services
There is nothing better than getting your foot in the door and trying out a career that interests you.
Butler University believes experiential learning transforms theory into practice. This kind of learning takes the form of internships, co-ops, practica, field experience, and apprenticeships. We help you apply your classroom learning to real world situations under the guidance of experienced professionals so that you develop an early understanding of what it is like to work in your chosen profession.
The Internship and Career Services office at Butler helps you find the experience that best matches your own personal interests and ambitions. Engaging in some form of experiential learning at Butler allows you to gain valuable experience that relates to your major, receive academic credit for your work, learn new skills, and make contacts that often lead to a full-time position upon graduation.
