Internships and Field Studies are an essential part of the preparation for your career. By participating in an internship or field study, you apply the theory and knowledge you have learned in the classroom through hands-on experience in a professional setting. While working under the guidance of an experienced professional, you get a unique opportunity to learn about yourself, your clients, your organizations, and your environment. Site supervisors act as role models, providing direction so that you can both observe and participate in the work of the organization.

Careers

Any field that values understanding people, the relationships they make, and the differences between them hires humanities graduates. A major doesn't necessarily determine a career. Companies value the problem solving and communicative skills only liberal arts programs can provide. 

Career Services at Virginia Tech offers a variety of services including career exploration, job searching, resume analysis, and interview training.
