Internships and Research Programs

Let USAC bring the world to you. Through our virtual internship program you can gain an international perspective and develop intercultural experience through internships placements offered by USAC Specialty Programs around the world.

Virtual Internships

Gain valuable career experience working remotely for an internationally-based company through a virtual internship in popular industries such as digital marketing, business, event planning, media, English language instruction, translation, and more.

Three-credit virtual internships are arranged by USAC Specialty Program directors with local companies, NGOs, and governmental organizations. Virtual internships include an online course component where students learn how culture is reflected in the workplace and develop skills necessary for success in the global workforce.


Virtual interns come together throughout the program to join our resident directors and staff in a series of fun and interactive virtual workshops on topics such as Italian cooking, yoga in India, Latin dance, or Ghanaian art. (Topics vary by term.) You will also attend a series of online career development panels on subjects like cross-cultural teamwork or pursuing an international career.
