Internship Opportunities

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.

Instructions for 760 Internship Course

Please follow these steps:
1. As soon as you know the location of your internship, please send the Academic Coordinator, Leesa Brockman, the requisite information:
        ➢ name of institution, department, supervisor, supervisor's email and phone number, and the start date of the internship.
2. Before students may begin their internship, they need to complete and submit to the Academic Coordinator (Leesa Brockman) the Liability Waiver.
3. Leesa will then determine if a Service Learning Agreement is necessary and, if so, she will forward that electronically to the Internship Supervisor.
4. Once the SLA is processed, Leesa will initiate an Institutional Site Questionnaire to the Internship Supervisor.
5. Finally, together with their Internship Supervisor, students are to complete a Learning Plan and submit that to Dr. Gates' mailbox located in EBA-246.
*Please note that you cannot start your internship until the Liability form has been submitted

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 plan:
