An internship is defined by Barrett as a single, short-term work assignment that offers the student the opportunity to enhance classroom knowledge. Your internship should consist of career-related professional work experiences that will promote your academic and personal goals. The internship experience can be paid or unpaid, but it should not be a part-time job. The scope of your responsibilities should be more than basic administrative and clerical tasks.
Students are able to earn zero, one, two, or three credits for their internship experience combined with the coursework for HON 484. See the table below for more information regarding the for-credit and zero-credit options for HON 484.
Students have substantial flexibility in finding internships. The college gives careful consideration to the student’s quality of internship experience. As a result, certain restrictions do apply as follows:
Internship credit for HON 484 should be pursued as early as possible (usually in the preceding semester) in order to secure the internship itself and make sure that all appropriate pre-conditions are met for both the company and the college. It is the student’s responsibility to navigate this process to meet the following deadlines.
All paperwork must be submitted to Cassandra Saenz at firstname.lastname@example.org by the following deadlines, depending on the semester of your internship

Please note, all hours for internships must be earned by the last day of classes for the term.
