- 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 Hong Kong internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in Government, Economics, Art, Criminology, Conflict Analysis & Resolution, Communications, and Psychology, and more. Hong Kong is home to thousands of multinational companies, and being located in a strategic access point for all of Asia, it is no wonder Hong Kong has a vibrant youth scene, is well-known for its history, politics, trade and finance, culture, and tradition. With English as its language of law and business, it is no wonder attracts internship students from all around the world.
