Moving beyond the books, University of Tampa students are encouraged to add value to their degree by participating in at least one internship. This type of experiential learning is key to making well-rounded graduates ready for the workforce. Not only do our students learn new skills, but they refine their career paths with real-world experiences.
Our students regularly engage in the following types of internship opportunities.
- Tampa Bay Lightning – Students gained knowledge, experience, contacts and confidence interning in several departments at the Tampa Bay Lightning, a professional ice hockey team, and at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, home to the Lightning and the Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League, as well as events like basketball and concerts.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Assisted with autograph sessions, charted plays for coaches, processed the credentials for media and celebrities during the National Football League team’s summer training camp.
