Internships are intended to provide the student with an opportunity to apply linguistic, cultural, analytical, interpretive, and creative skills developed in
coursework. Internships will take place in Salerno, Italy, in businesses that cater to language-specific clientele, healthcare programs that serve the community, cultural or community centers, or a relevant not-for-profit organization, library, or archive. Each internship will be tailored-made for each student, based on her/his major or minor.
Apply the theoretical principles (or student's respective academic major) to identify a specific career interest. Gain experience by serving as an intern in that area of career interest. Be inspired to draw upon academic theory, research methodology and methods to solve real world problems. Develop and translate analytic, communication, leadership, and problem-solving skills into civic responsibility. Foster mutually beneficial collaborations between the student and community to promote positive social change. Gain enhanced knowledge of issues of global societal significance and associated alternative cultural and national perspectives toward those issues.
Salerno is a port city southeast of Naples, in Italy. Atop Monte Bonadies, the centuries-old Arechi Castle has sea views, plus Museo Medievale del Castello, exhibiting medieval ceramics and coins. In town, built on the ruins of a Roman temple, is Salerno Cathedral. It has Byzantine bronze doors, a baroque crypt and a marble altar. The terraced Minerva’s Garden has been growing medicinal plants since the 14th century.
At least one excursion will be included in the programs. Students should note that excursion locations and dates are subject to change.
In Salerno students are accommodated in selected shared standard apartments all walking distance from the school in the city center. They enjoy the traditional and real-life setting, practicing the language and tasting the delicious local food (mozzarella, pizza, pasta, etc.).
