Many honors students take advantage of special internship opportunities offered through the Honors Program. Some students chose to work in the Lubbock area, but others have spent a semester at the Washington Center for Internships and Academic Programs.
LCU Honors students who have interned in Washington include
- Taylor Lassiter (History) at the Defense Department
- Jessica Boffey (Humanities) at the Public Defender's Office
- Sarah Vela (Finance) at the Internal Revenue Service
- Cari Jones (Social Work) at Child Protective Services
The University Honors Program works closely with departmental advisors to aid honors students with the best possible internships. In addition to invaluable learning experiences, often these internship opportunities provide job promises for the future.
