The internship process:
- Talk with a faculty member or the Director of the School of Business to explore options for internships.
- You need to approach an internship search as you would any other type of job search. An internship is actually a short-term job with a specific learning agenda.
- Identify a potential internship opportunity via:
- Academic & Career Center Directory
- Learning Contract Database available in the A & CC
- Internship directories available in the A & CC Library
- Internet resources
- Personal Networking
- Faculty Referrals
- The Washington Center For Internships
- Alumni referral system
- You must be a student with sophomore standing and a 2.25 GPA
- You are responsible for identifying a faculty member to serve as faculty sponsor for your Application for Individualized Instruction. This person will guide you in developing a document that will help you acquire valuable career-building experience.
- The total number of semester hours of individualized instruction credit that may apply toward graduation is fifteen.
- A ratio of 35 – 40 hours of effort for each hour of academic credit granted is required for all internships.
