Internship Opportunities

Internships afford students the opportunity to have practical job experience and put them in good standing for future jobs. Supplementing the academic curriculum, Ewha GSIS utilizes short-term and long-term internships to train students as international specialists. Ewha GSIS students have interned at various public and private sector organizations, both domestically and abroad. (A list of a few institutions where students have interned is provided below.) Resources are provided to aid students in finding available opportunities, however students are responsible for actively researching and obtaining internships.
