Internship (for credit)
As an important part of the Career ArchitectureSM process at Stevenson University, career exploration and preparation are keys to a student's success. This off-campus learning experience is reserved for second, third, and fourth year students who want to gain essential hands-on learning beyond the classroom prior to graduating. Internships may or may not be paid depending on departmental and employer policy. Students receive credit and a pass/fail grade for their participation which is minimally 120 hours during a semester. Placement of students is arranged by the University for select areas of study, whereas other areas of study encourage students to self-select opportunities. Students can explore internship opportunities through SUCentral, an on-line jobs database maintained by Career HQ. The Career HQ office can also assist students with resume/cover letter writing and interview preparation skills. All internships must be approved by the appropriate Division Director or Department Chair. Students must secure an internship and register for the coordinating course prior to the semester in which they plan to complete the internship. Upon selection and approval of an internship, students will be assigned a faculty advisor who will monitor the experience. At the conclusion of the internship, the student, faculty advisor, and work supervisor evaluate the experience.
