Student Life

First-hand Experience

As part of the MFST curriculum, students are required to participate in an internship. Internships are an excellent opportunity to network, test out skills you learned in the classroom, and see what kind of career interests you.

The University of Illinois has hundreds of Registered Student Organizations to choose from. These RSO's are a great way to meet your peers and gain resume-building experience. Students are also encouraged to seek out professional organizations in the career field of their choice.
