Internship Course (XXX 467) Requirements

  1. Internships entail 120 hours of work.
  2. All internships need to be cleared with the Coordinator of Internships or department chair or coordinator of the program before the student begins to work. Usually students work between 15 and 20 hours per week during a regular semester but they can work full-time during the summer terms if they do not take classes. Scheduling of days and hours will be done at convenient and efficient times based on agreement of both student and Internship supervisor.

  6. Students based on their observations and gained experience will create and deliver a “Reflection Paper” to class instructor, close to the end of semester.
  7. The syllabus will provide information on requirements of “PP Presentation” and “Reflection paper” and dates of class meetings.
