“As a Social Work major, I am completing an internship at a detox facility for adolescents. That practical experience has been a helpful addition to what I’ve learned in the classroom. Plus, my professors have been tremendous; they really care about us as students and want to see us excel not only at AMC, but in the future as well.“
Michael Gorman '15 Social Work Major From Methuen, MA
“I was able to experience a variety of clinical settings, from a medical/surgical floor in a large teaching hospital caring for patients with complex medical needs to the special considerations a correctional nurse must be aware of while assessing inmates. These hands-on experiences have given me a first-hand view of what my occupation as a registered nurse will involve.”
Emily Amodeo '15 Nursing Major From Southbridge, MA
"Through my student teaching experience I have learned so much about being a teacher and about myself. I have gained knowledge from being in the profession, collected tons of new resources and found methods of teaching that work and don't work for me and my wide range of students. I feel fully prepared for my future career as an educator."
Cristina Turley '15 Education Major From Waterford, CT
Real, Relevant Experience
Internships bring theory to life
At AMC, a college education is more than what happens in the classroom. You’ll find plenty of experiential learning opportunities available to help you put your knowledge to work and develop valuable life skills.
Internships can be invaluable learning experiences that let you test-drive possible careers. Students in all majors complete internships, which most often are for-credit experiences during the academic year of over the summer. Career Services maintains databases of available internships and will help you prepare through workshops on resume writing, the interview process and networking.
