Internship Research

As part of our ongoing research projects on college internships, CCWT is regularly reviewing the literature on internships across national and disciplinary boundaries. A summary of the literature based on a 2022 review is available here, and on this webpage we provide some of the more recent and robust studies on internships in higher education. This is a work in progress and newly identified papers and reports will be continually added to this webpage.
