Internship (for credit)
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.
Students can explore these internship opportunities through NACElink, an online jobs database maintained by Career Services and through their academic department. The Career Services staff is available to assist students with resume and cover letter writing and interview preparation skills. All credit-bearing internships must be approved by the appropriate 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.
