Internship Learning is a general term for any community-based experience related to a student's field of study. Internship Learning is incorporated into the University's Mission Statement as one of the common elements in all programs and services.
The University minimum number of hours is 150 hours per semester. The following programs of study have different requirements:
Students earning internship course credit must have a Faculty Coordinator. The Faculty Coordinator assists the student in registering, approves student learning objectives, monitors student progress, and assigns the student's grade at the conclusion of the semester. The Faculty Coordinator is expected to make at least one site visit and to communicate with the student's site supervisor. Examples of tools that Faculty Coordinators may use to monitor student's progress include time sheets, journals, and final reports. The Office of Career Services functions as the Faculty Coordinator for non-credit internship students.
Internship sites are identified in a variety of ways.
