Internships for Credit

Generally, internships involve about 50 hours of field work for each credit, so about 150 hours for a three-credit internship; this is about 10 hours per week during a regular semester. Internships are to follow these expectations:

Internship Grading

Internships are graded based on the quality of performance and the quality of the final paper.

Supervised Internship

The off-campus internship supervisor is expected to oversee your work and ensure the position offers educational value and a good experience.

Faculty Mentor

A faculty mentor on campus oversees the internship, meets periodically with the student during the semester, reviews written work and submits a grade.

Write About It

The intern completes a paper evaluating their experience during the internship and connecting internship experience with material learned in traditional classes.
