- Program Description:
Mason internship study abroad programs are destination-specific programs. Unlike traditional study abroad programs focusing on one particular subject, internship programs include students from different majors, working and studying in the same location. The student’s internship placement within a company relative to their area of study defines their global work experience, and determines the internship course credit the student will receive. For example, a China internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in Government, Economics, Art, Criminology, Conflict Analysis & Resolution, Communications, and Psychology, and more. Beijing is home to heritage sites such as The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, The Temple of Heaven and one of the Seven Wonders of the World - the Great Wall. Beijing has a vibrant youth scene with the ultra-modern Sanlitun shopping village and the 798 Art District, well-known for its history, politics, trade and finance, rich in culture, and tradition. With its international atmosphere, it is no surprise it attracts students from all around the world.
Students may inquire about the type of internship opportunities in their area of study and about the complete support services offered during the program by emailing CRCC Asia before enrolling in a Mason Study Abroad internship program.
