Internships & Co-ops

The Mount Ida Campus of the University of Massachusetts Amherst provides a Boston-area center for student experiential learning opportunities and industry collaboration.

The campus offers students a base in the Newton and Needham area from which to pursue internships and cooperative education positions (co-ops) important to their career preparation while helping to address the growing need for talent in areas that drive the state economy. 

Beginning in January of 2019, housing options on the Mount Ida Campus will be made available for students who seek these opportunities. For employers who would like to reach this pool of interested students, UMass Amherst uses online portals where employers can register and post internship, co-op as well as employment opportunities.

For specific questions please contact Mary Corcoran, Special Assistant to the Deputy Chancellor at mccorcoran@umass.edu or 617-243-1116 for further assistance.
