POL 480 - Semester Internship


A full-semester field experience, this course requires that students apply academic theories to the professional work environment.  The course is planned with and supervised by faculty and site supervisors.  A weekly, on-campus seminar enables students to reflect on their internship experiences, discuss reading and writing assignments that integrate theory and practice, and refine their job search skills. At the conclusion of the course, students deliver oral presentations that clearly articulate their internship experiences, professional strengths, and future career directions.

Prerequisites & Notes
All course requirements of the freshman, sophomore, and junior years must be completed, or the school dean must grant permission.  Note: Students completing a distance internship must have reliable internet access; they will be communicating with their instructors via Gullnet.  Students must arrange to take Senior Thesis I either the semester before or after the internship.
