Purpose of Internships

An internship is a program of education that formally integrates the student’s academic study with work experience in cooperating organizations. The experience is considered an integral part of the student’s education and he/she is awarded college credit for successful participation in the program. This welding of theory and practice is both a deliberate and significant career (discipline) related experience.

It is the student’s responsibility to indicate the desire to intern with his/her adviser and the Internship Coordinator. Registration for internship is not automatic, but must be initiated by the student through regular registration procedures.
