What is the internship?
It’s an opportunity for bright UT students in ALL colleges and schools to work closely with a
graduate student mentor. Discover the unique aspects of graduate study that make it distinct
from the undergraduate experience and decide if graduate school is for you!
What would I have to do?
You’ll attend monthly workshops and meetings with other interns to discuss your experiences,
plus you’ll get the opportunity to interact with faculty and graduate student panels. In
addition, you and your graduate student mentor determine your projects and assignments for
the semester collaboratively.
What Students Say about the Program:
“This IE Internship has opened my eyes to possibilities I never before had contemplated. It has allowed me to
think about my education and discipline from the bottom up, rather than the top down. How odd that it took
until my final year and a class outside my field to be given the opportunity to make these discoveries.”
“A doctorate was something I had never considered, but now I feel it is one career path I would want to pursue. The IE program broadened my career choices.”
