Experiential Learning: It's More Than Just Internships!

University Career Services manages Experiential Learning Opportunities for ETSU Students. The purpose of our Experiential Learning Program is to provide learning and training opportunities for students, outside the classroom and laboratory, as students work toward graduation and transition to the labor market. Experiential Learning placements provide unique opportunities for partnerships between organizations and East Tennessee State University.

We manage academic internships for the degree fields listed below (major or minors). Opportunities listed under the Experiential Learning Opportunities link are available as career experiences for all degree fields. Eligibility for academic credit for those positions would be determined by the department head of your degree/major or minor field.

Application information and job descriptions are located in the University Career Services Office. Due to the D. P. Culp renovation, we are now located in Nell Jennings Dossett Hall on the first floor. All of the listed positions have been pre-approved for academic credit, but semester availability varies due to employer need. Additions to the list will occur as the positions become available. 

Please contact our office to discuss how we may serve your experiential learning needs.
