Academic Internships

Internships across the curriculum are a critical part of the College's connected learning philosophy. Internships (also known as practica, clinicals, and student teaching) serve several purposes. They help students:

  • Apply coursework knowledge to a non-academic setting
  • Learn/strengthen technical, professional, interpersonal, and work performance skills
  • Demonstrate strong work ethic in a professional setting
  • Explore and refine career choices
  • Enhance and develop professional skills
  • Network with professionals in the field
  • Enhance marketability for employment
  • Prepare for future graduate school education
  • Work with diverse populations

Each academic major's internship practices are designed to meet licensure, certification, and professional requirements and expectations, and, thus, internships differ across departments. In every major, internships are an integral component of a comprehensive program, which includes course preparation, the internship work experience, mentoring, guided supervision, and reflection. Internship requirements can range anywhere from 120 to 400 hours in a semester. Some majors, such as Human Services, Sociology, Psychology, Athletic Training, and Education require more than one internship.
