An externship is a short-term, experiential learning opportunity that allows individuals to gain practical knowledge and skills in a specific field or industry. It is similar to an internship but typically has a shorter duration. At American Heritage School's Salt Lake City Campus, externships are for five work days, from March 4–8, 2024.

During an externship, individuals have the opportunity to observe and shadow professionals in their chosen field, gaining insights into the day-to-day activities, responsibilities, and challenges. It provides a chance to apply classroom knowledge in a real-world setting and make connections with professionals in the industry. Externships can be beneficial for students, recent graduates, or anyone seeking to explore a particular career path or industry before making a longer-term commitment.
