Academic departments place and supervise seniors working in a professional environment representing a student’s major discipline. The internship program is designed to provide the senior with a practical, supervised experience in a professional setting representing the student’s major. Forty (40) contact hours are expected for each semester hour credit granted; some departments may require more contact hours per credit hour. Admission into an internship program is subject to the approval of the department. Interested students should contact the department chair of their major discipline for information early in the junior year. The internship application is available at the University Registrar’s Office, and from the chairperson of the department in which the internship will be completed.
The approved University application is due in the registrar’s office 15 days before the beginning of the term in which the internship will take place. Students should contact the appropriate department chair for specific information. Placement is made by the supervising faculty member in the department in which the internship will be completed. Students may not initiate their own internship placements unless directed to do so by the department.
