To ensure that an experience is educational, and thus eligible to be considered a legitimate internship by the National Association of Colleges and Employers definition, all the following criteria must be met:
The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.
All supervisors and instructors will approve your internship experience within 2 business days.
No, please stop by Career Development in Augustine Hall with any questions. You will register for the course via Handshake and Career Development will process your registration.
You must be a sophomore (at least 30 credit hours have been completed).
This is a very rare case. If you think you will receive an internship after the add/drop date, you must notify Career Development BEFORE the add/drop deadline. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
No. The course requires that you be working while registered for the course. The university cannot award retroactive credit for an internship you completed in the past.
Learning objectives are goals that you are trying to achieve in your internship. Goals must be measurable and be able to be evaluated. For example:
Please contact the department chair in order to see if you can receive course credit for your internship.
No, all approvals will be given via Handshake. Students will provide OPCD with your email address so that you may receive the approval request. If you do not receive the email, please email email@example.com.
The email will come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
No, the email will contain a link to approve the request.
We ask that you provide approval within 2 business days.
Yes, you can. We ask that you provide comments as to why it is not approved or steps the student needs to take in order to be approved.
We are looking for substantive content reflecting on critical thinking skills, reflections, predictions, and insights.
