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.
