Internships allow students to supplement classroom theory with practical knowledge gained from a carefully monitored, field-based learning experience in a professional setting. Internships provide either a general career exploratory experience (experimental internship) or a pre-professional level experience related to the student’s academic objectives (departmental internship).
The faculty sponsor is responsible for the evaluation of the internship experience. The faculty sponsor evaluates the student’s written work (written work might include a paper, journals, posters, exhibits, etc.) and the on-site supervisor’s evaluation of the intern’s work.
The intern will fill out an electronic evaluation of their experience of the internship.
The faculty sponsor assigns the student’s grade.
