Internships/Experiential Learning

 
 
 

The Integrative Studies Internship (INTE 3901) and  Liberal Studies Internship (BALS 3901) are the principal "experiential learning" components of the programs; although, students may also earn additional credit via other internships or cooperative education.

The internship is normally taken in the first term of the senior year, and the placement site will be in a professional work environment related to the interests/career goals of the individual student. Placement may be with for-profit, not-for-profit, or governmental entities as appropriate.

Collaborating businesses/agencies must agree to create and supervise meaningful experiences that will allow students to observe and participate in real world projects and activities that bear directly on the challenges of the contemporary workplace. Students are permitted to complete an internship in the company where they are already employed, but the duties must be separate from daily tasks. Students are encouraged to seek experiential opportunities outside the USA.

Liberal Studies and Integrative Studies' students aren't permitted to complete the internship in  public schools, due to direct supervision of a certified teacher. If you are pursuing a career in education, feel free to meet with me to discuss other options.
