Placements are made on a case-by-case basis and potentially can be found in a large variety of fields. Past interns have been placed in positions with prestigious art museums and galleries. Additionally, Florida State has contacts with art restoration specialists and world class hotels and restaurants. All of these opportunities immerse students in the unique culture of Florence. This experience and exposure will raise awareness of, and potentially provide entree to, a variety of career opportunities. Our interns gain unparalleled practical work experience, make invaluable connections, and acquire exceptional employment references.

Conditions and Eligibility
Competition for international internships is keen, as the sponsoring organizations are seeking highly capable individuals. Only the most qualified candidates are selected. While we make every effort to find the best placement to match academic and career goals, we cannot guarantee a specific placement. Placements are dependent upon student credentials, availability of suitable positions, and possible interviews. When requesting placements, students should understand there is a high level of responsibility and commitment required for the successful completion of international internships. Students who derive the most from professional internships are mature, self-motivated, intellectually curious, reliable, friendly, detail-oriented, and flexible.

Application Requirements
* Applicants must be full-time, degree-seeking students with at least a 3.0 GPA (3.5 for British Parliament, DLA Piper Rudnick Carey and the U.S. Embassy).
* Interns in Valencia and Panama must have a strong background in both Spanish comprehension and conversation. Any placement that requires proficiency in a certain language will necessitate an interview with a native-speaker, arranged through International Programs.
