Vizcaya offers volunteer (unpaid) and paid internship opportunities in its various divisions for the fall, spring and summer terms. Internships provide candidates with the opportunity to build professional and academic skills and experience. In addition, interns are invited to participate in the daily activities of the division in which they are working as well as in related special projects, if their schedule and assignment allow.
Internship schedules and supervision vary, based on the division and assignment. Internships can be offered for academic course credit with prior approval from an educational institution.
