Internships and Careers

At Lake Forest, both quality academic programs and internship experiences help students prepare for the working world. Our proximity to Chicago and relationships with the city’s cultural institutions offer access not only to extensive internship options, but also to a network of powerful alumni and friends.


Students studying French, German, or Spanish intern in various fields to further their understanding of foreign languages and cultures. These experiences often complement a second major and/or minor.

Our students have assisted government officials, served as translators, developed skills in technology and data analysis, and prepared and taught class lessons at more than 25 sites.

Lake Forest students can pursue up to three for-credit internships.

  • Politics, government, and law
