International Internship

This Southern Utah University-sponsored internship provides an opportunity for students—single or married couples—to live, work, experience, and study abroad in either Panama City, Panama, or Lima, Peru.

Interns will work under the supervision of a local full-time SUU employee and will be provided tangible international work experience that will allow them to be immersed in a foreign culture, serve in the community, and promote/grow SUU in an international market.
