CCU Students Complete Internships Despite Disruptions to Classes, Schedules

Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

The latter part of the spring semester at Coastal Carolina University saw classes redirected away from campus. Some students were already learning away from campus, however, in internships, both near and far. Some of those were disrupted and some continued as planned, but in most cases credit was earned and lessons were learned.


All students are encouraged to participate in one or more internships during their enrollment at Coastal Carolina University, regardless of their field of study. Students can work as interns during their fall, spring, or summer semesters and earn a grade by enrolling in an internship course in their field of study.

There are numerous local internships available, and most majors offer multiple courses that allow students the opportunity to participate in national or international internships. Last year, 2,433 CCU students completed internships for course credit.
