Explore, Experience, and Engage in a field of your choice!

*Note: Externships were on hold for the 2021-2022 academic year due to COVID-19. We look forward to their return! 

An Externship is a short (1-5 days) practical experience that will allow OWU students to EXPLORE a potential career path, gain valuable job EXPERIENCE, and ENGAGE with OWU alumni in various career fields and industries.

Students looking for experience

Externships are a great opportunity for students to learn more about what it is like to work in the field of study or even a field of study they may be interested in. Be sure to check out opportunities for this spring break.
