Students complete internships and field experiences at companies such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Kraft Foods and the City of Newberry, Newberry County Public Defender's Office, Lexington County Family Court, and many more.

"My internship supported the vision, mission, and company objectives of the Newberry Opera House by enabling the Opera House to provide real-time information to patrons and support its marketing efforts. It was a unique and valuable experience." Brianna Blakely '11
