Build your connections to the professional world with internships from New York museums, to the Mayo Clinic, to San Francisco investment firms.
No matter what your interest or major, there’s likely a valuable internship for you through The OWU Connection.
We offer major programs like New York Arts and Wesleyan in Washington as well as individual internships through our web of prominent alumni.
We will work with you to provide options that match your skills and interests to the right workplace, locally, nationally, or internationally. Interns serve different functions in different settings, and what you bring to the table will be as important as what you’ll take away.
Ohio Wesleyan students have interned in countless governmental agencies, private sector business and legal firms, nonprofit advocacy organizations, medical/scientific research facilities, media outlets, and think tanks.
Some of our students have graced the halls of Congress and the White House. We’ve also placed students with the Smithsonian, World Bank, United Nations, Kennedy Center, NASA, National Institutes of Health, The Nature Conservancy, NAACP, NOW, American Enterprise Institute, AARP, Amnesty International, and many more.
Internship experience is an important rung on the ladder to meaningful employment or to more advanced study.
