Becker Career Center

Internships

One of the distinguishing characteristics of Union's liberal arts education is our emphasis on applying ideas through practical experience. Our ideal location – near the state capital of Albany, in the heart of the Northeast's "Tech Valley," a three-hour drive to New York City and Boston – enables us to connect our students with valuable internships in all fields.
