CEA Internships


Academic Focus
A Strong Academic Focus
All interns participate in "The Multicultural Workspace," a seminar that meets regularly and is designed to assist students in integrating and internalizing their internship experiences. Students earn academic credit for the program.

An Individualized Placement Process
CEA helps students articulate reachable goals; our locally-based staff secure placements that encourage students to develop skills and professional competencies.

Substantial Pre-Employment Experience
The work plan students develop with their supervisor guides students as they expand their skillsets and make a meaningful impact.

Affordable, Convenient Options
CEA offers multiple internship abroad options and price ranges - from 8-week summer sessions to full semester programs. And all offer placements in English.


Internship Programs

Study + Internship: These programs available during the spring, summer, and fall combine coursework with internships, enabling students to make steady degree progress as they gain work experience.

Internship Only: Running during the summer, Internship Only programs focus entirely on gaining career experience and are ideal for students balancing a modest budget.

All CEA Internship Abroad programs are unpaid, pre-professional opportunities for students to:

  • develop workplace skills;
  • explore the subtleties of a specific career field;
  • build relevant résumé experience;
  • learn how to cultivate a healthy work/life balance, and;
  • build a professional network.

CEA offers an internship placement guarantee to all enrolled applicants


Value to the Student and University

With an internship abroad, students develop the hands-on, practical experience they need to rise above the competition. The experience is their pay, and the many benefits they receive directly affect their future.

When universities encourage students to complete internships abroad and develop workplace skills, students reap the benefits:

Stand Out

Greater visibility in the job market

Find Jobs

Shorter job searches


Higher starting salaries


Greater job satisfaction


Increased lifetime earnings

Changes the Game  
Interning abroad changes the game. You will have a drastically different and more impactful experience interning abroad than you will studying abroad. You will really learn about the culture of the place you are living in and you will come out of your internship with skills you never knew existed.
