At Lake Forest, students have easy access to great internships. Motivated students could complete up to three credit-bearing internship experiences by the time they graduate.

The internship supervisors and advisors at the Career Advancement Center help students create an internship search plan and find opportunities in their areas of interest. Our proximity to Chicago gives students lots of internship options in business, finance, communications, social service, government, arts, and entertainment, and much more.

Students at Lake Forest College may do internships for credit, which are linked to their area of study, as well as not for credit, during the school year or in summer.
