Internship Services

Internships are considered part of the academic learning process for many majors at Walla Walla University. An experiential learning experience is a great way to develop specific skills and knowledge, as well as make contacts and build confidence. Pursuing career-related opportunities prior to graduation can give you an edge over other candidates in a competitive job market.
