The perfect addition to your college semester.
Career Semester is an online program that enables students to invest in their future while enrolled in college courses. During the semester-long program, participants will engage in a live career-focused seminar combined with an international internship, giving them the experience they need to boost their career.
A Career Semester is unlike anything students have experienced before. Instead of streaming content designed for large audiences, each online course is taught live by industry experts who are trained to foster engagement and community.
After completing the course aspect of the program, students will be matched with a global internship partner and work remotely with their peers on a real-world project that’s scoped to their skill set. Throughout the internship, students will receive consistent feedback and support from their manager, their peers, and Career Semester’s expert education team.
Career Semester programs unite students, teachers, and companies around the world. Not only will students plug into a global community, but they’ll get valuable experience working remotely, which will help them stand out when applying for jobs at forward-thinking companies after graduation.

What Career Semester Students are Saying
This class was incredibly rewarding. Not only were our professors and teaching assistants knowledgable, passionate, and dedicated, but we were given the opportunity to muddle through problems on our own and teach ourselves skills—both very valuable learning experiences. The internship was an amazing experience that gave every student real industry experience."
