Internship Away

The central objective of this course is to provide students with an academic-oriented framework that informs, supports and complements their internship learning experience. There is a strong tradition that field experience - in the broadest sense of the term - can be an important step in a college education. Students in the course participate in an internship that offers them
the opportunity to: engage in learning in an off-campus work-related organizational setting, extend knowledge acquired elsewhere in the curriculum, learn how to create observational fieldnotes that lead to an academic analysis of an organizational experience and reflect upon work experience within an academic context.
