Get an inside look at a career you’re considering with a one-week externship. Principia’s Externship Program provides a chance for you to “shadow” professionals in the workplace, gain firsthand experience, and learn about a field of interest.

Our students have enjoyed externships at financial institutions, government organizations, labs, advertising and marketing firms, social service agencies, arts organizations, manufacturing companies, law offices, media outlets, design companies, and more. One of our most popular externships is the “Hollywood Abroad,” where students make connections in the entertainment industry.
