Internships

Experience. Applying what you learn in the classroom to real life situations. Understanding the daily demands of work. Taking risks. Gaining confidence and perspectives. These are things you don't learn from a textbook.

That's why internships and independent learning play a strong role in the Simmons curriculum.

Simmons College Class of 2014 Outcomes Survey

Beginning with the Simmons College Class of 2014 (which includes any student that received their degree between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014), we will be surveying all bachelor's recipients on their first-destination outcomes, including employment and graduate school outcomes, via the new Simmons College Outcomes Survey. Each recent graduate in the Class of 2014 should have received an email with details on participating in the survey, and their own individual link to their survey profile. Participants will be entered into national prize raffles, administered by our vendor, CSO Research, Inc.

We strongly encourage every Class of 2014 bachelor's recipient to participate in the Outcomes Survey, and to update their contact information (including email address) via the survey.

NOTE: Participation in the Class of 2014 Outcomes Survey indicates that you have read and agree to the terms in the Informed Consent Form.

For more information on the Class of 2014 Outcomes Survey, or to request that a link to your individual survey profile be re-sent to you, please contact us at careers@simmons.edu or 617-521-2488.
