Gain professional experience abroad with credit-bearing internships through community-led projects or field interaction with experts at international organizations.

The Experiment internship program, facilitated through the School for International Training (SIT), consists of a four-week group internship with a community organization, research institute, business, or international NGO. This collaborative group experience helps you develop skills in an international and professional environment.

The Experiment, through SIT, has an extensive network of partners to facilitate internship placement. With faculty, staff, and local partners, you will take an active role in securing your internship and developing a learning agreement that outlines your objectives for your internship experience. You will benchmark and monitor your learning outcomes through regular guided reflection and assessment meetings with faculty.

You will complete your internship with a final project such as a written paper, or a multimedia video or podcast, that demonstrates your learning experience including the specific skills and knowledge you acquired through your internships. This project may analyze an issue important to the organization, and/or design a socially responsible solution to a problem identified by the organization. Your final project will also link your internship learning with your program’s critical global issue focus and overall program theme.

The Experiment’s academic programs offered in partnership with SIT (founded as the School for International Training) are accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.). Inquiries regarding the accreditation status should be directed to the administrative staff of SIT.
