KSR 4275 - Field Experience


An individually planned work experience in a business, agency, or program appropriate to the student's area of specialization. The internship experience is designed to familiarize students with both one's field of study as well as the process of obtaining employment.

Purpose & Expectations:

An internship provides an excellent networking opportunity that could lead to full-time employment. It is expected that you will dress, speak, and act professionally at all times. Your professionalism will strongly influence the job opportunities you receive following your internship. You are receiving college credit for the internship and therefore, it should take priority over other commitments.

Prerequisites for Registration:
