Pepperdine is committed to preparing students for lives of service, purpose and leadership. To that end, we seek to provide our students with real-world experience in settings where they can develop a commitment to service, a life of purpose and a vision for leadership.
Our students are eager to take advantage of the real-world workplace opportunities afforded by an internship experience. Pepperdine University encourages students to pursue internships throughout the academic year and grants academic credit based on established criteria. Internships may be paid or unpaid. Our calendar is divided into three terms:
- Fall--late August through early December
- Spring--January through April
- Summer--May through mid-August
(Most students seek paid positions full or part time)
