On average, 65% of Hollins students complete at least one internship during their four years. Internships take our students all over the country, from hospitals to newsrooms, from museums to government agencies, and from movie studios to law firms. We also offer internships through our Hollins Abroad-London program.
Hollins places such importance on internships because they help our students test out careers in the workplace. They also help students in finding a job after graduation. Interns tend to receive more job offers and higher salaries than graduates who have not had work experience. On average within one year of graduation, 70% of Hollins graduates are employed, and 27% are attending graduate or professional school.
