Internships for Reggio Emilia, Italy
USAC internships are rich resources for your academic and professional development particularly in your study abroad setting. USAC internships are considered courses and count as part of your credit load. They can be time-consuming, but are very worthwhile. Students will be working in an authentic local environment, with exposure to the Italian language. Italian language ability is not necessary to complete an internship, but helpful. Interns earn credits but no financial compensation. The schedule and the number of work hours will be determined by the schedule of USAC courses. Internship credit(s) are only offered in addition to the minimum 12-credit load. Example placements may include:
- Reggio Approach preschools
- Local middle school
- Local high schools
- Centro Palmer: local multi-specialty private clinic
- Prevention Center
- Speech pathologies center
COMMUNICATION + ITALIAN STUDIES:
- Marketing at Impact Hub Network

Additional options tutoring English to Italian university students, children, and adults, as well as with local and international companies may be available. The on-site staff will try to set up different, requested options if possible. Placement is not guaranteed by USAC, rather it will be determined by your application and supporting materials and an interview with the internship sponsor on site.
