What is an externship? Externships are experiential learning opportunities, similar to internships offered by educational institutions to give students short practical experiences in their field of study. Externships are generally shorter than internships and last for approximately two days to a few weeks. Since they are less extensive, they are not usually given any academic credit. Due to the short duration, externships can be easily completed during a student’s spring and summer breaks or even during a January interim.


An opportunity for students to gain experience in a chosen field through college credit or work experience. Applicants should expect to be able to provide minimum qualifications to benefit from internships in many fields.

The PVCC Career Services Coordinator can provide guidance and assistance in obtaining an internship in your chosen field.
