The first step to getting an internship for credit is to take the Internship Orientation Course (if offered by your department). The course is typically one credit, meeting 50 minutes once a week for 15 weeks.
The course teaches:
See your Faculty Advisor regarding internship info and getting assigned to a Faculty Supervisor. You'll then work with your Faculty Supervisor, who will be supervising you while you are out on internship. Your Faculty Supervisor has a lot of experience with internships, has built relationships with several sites through the years, and may have some great ideas for potential internship sites. Your Faculty Supervisor not only supervises your internship and visits your site, but awards your credit at the end of your internship. It is important to work closely with your Faculty Supervisor throughout the internship search process.
