Internships for Lyon, France

Due to heightened concerns about student health and safety we are suspending internship placements, volunteer work, and service-learning projects in health care facilities at all USAC program sites for the 2020-21 academic year. If you have any questions, please contact the USAC internship team at internship@usac.edu.

Internships are offered during the semester and yearlong terms. Internships are optional and included in your program fees. They range from 1-3 credits and are counted as part of your credit load. Interns earn credit, but no financial compensation. In addition to professional and academic experience, internships are a great way to immerse yourself in the culture, meet locals, and practice your language skills.
