1.) CED 205 or BIO 202 , EDU 415 , EGR 101 , EVS 351 , PSY 245
2.) Approval from Career, Leadership and Service
In this course, students plan a supervised internship experience for which they may earn academic credit. An internship is work experience offered by a business or organization for a limited period of time. Internships provide students with an opportunity to explore career interests while applying knowledge and skills learned in their courses. Internships also help develop an understanding of general workplace practices while gaining valuable professional experience and establishing networks.
Internships may be taken for 1 to 12 credit hours with a maximum of 12 credits that can be applied to graduation. If a student is completing an internship at an organization where a family member is employed, someone other than the family member must approve time and complete the intern evaluations. Students on the Crete campus who are completing this course over the summer may register up to 6 credits in the fall semester immediately following.
Students interested in completing an internship for credit should discuss requirements and degree implications with their advisor. Once a student has secured an internship position, students should contact Career, Leadership, & Service (firstname.lastname@example.org) to complete the approval process. If students need assistance finding or securing an internship opportunity, please also contact Career, Leadership, & Service.
