Internship Opportunities

Under COVID many of these locations have amended their offerings. For the summer of 2022, please refer to Handshake for the most up-to-date MHC-IIP internship opportunities.

With international internships, students see theory applied — and complicated — in practice.

The internship opportunities available through the McCulloch Center’s IIP spans a diverse set of fields and destinations. They bring highly qualified MHC students to more than a dozen countries across five continents, where sophomores and juniors work as summer interns at select partner organizations.
