Internship Opportunities

The principle internship goal is to provide students with an opportunity for a gradual transition from the University setting into an actual work setting.  In some cases, this transition may be difficult, and, in most cases, involves testing theory against practice and providing the students with the opportunity to determine their own strengths and areas for needed improvement.  If this transition is made with adequate supervision, the students will find greater strength and confidence in what they are doing.  Thus, students have the opportunity to learn under effective supervision and to adapt themselves more realistically to the professional life they are about to enter.

NOTE: With permission from their faculty advisor, students are allowed to use their graduate assistantship for internship credit.  However, there must be a clear delineation between paid work and credit work. (i.e. The hours you work for internship credit will be in addition to the hours you work as a paid graduate assistant).This is because the internship is designed to provide students with additional learning opportunities that they would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.

The following article and presentation can aid in the writing of outcomes for the learning agreement:
