Internship (198)

 

 

Guidelines & Requirements

 

THE FACULTY HAS ESTABLISHED INTERNSHIPS so that students might better acquaint themselves with environmental, pre-vocational, political, social, educational or technical circumstances of our society. The central component of the Internship is an off-campus, participatory experience, under the guidance and supervision of a qualified practitioner in the field. The experience must involve academic content.  Time spent in the field may be reduced by the amount of time necessary to complete academic requirements or materials for evaluation; additionally, the Faculty Adviser or Department Chair may require additional academic requirements for the student to complete, where it seems appropriate. Internships are graded Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.

 

PRIOR TO BEGINNING AN INTERNSHIP, students must secure written permission from the sponsoring agency and the Internship Faculty Adviser.  Students will receive credit only for Internships, which have been approved in advance.  Written proposals must be completed and in the Office of Academic Affairs by April 15, for Summer and Fall Sessions and by November 15, for Intersession and Spring Sessions.

 

 

Restrictions

 

  • A student may take no more than 2 Internships for credit.  Both Internships may be taken in the same department.

 

  • A student must have a G.P.A. of 2.5, or better, to take an Internship for credit.

 

  • A student may not take an Internship for credit while on academic probation.

 

  • Except in unusual and compelling circumstances, the practitioner/sponsor of a student’s off-campus participatory experience may not be a member of the student’s family.

 

  • An Internship linked to previous employment must involve significantly different experiences or activities.
