Internships

The Internship Program was developed to educate students about internships and encourage them to take part in one.

Apply classroom concepts to real world experience

The program is a joint effort between faculty, administration and staff members to provide necessary information about where to find an internship, how to get hired, and how to make the experience rewarding. With the help of our Internship Workbook, our students are able to navigate step-by step through the stages of the internship process and are given detailed information such as preparing a resume and cover letter, networking development, proper interview attire, and etiquette at meals. An internship is a great opportunity to apply classroom concepts to real world experience, while gaining a competitive edge in the professional market

The Internship Course

The Internship Course (IDIS 300) was developed to educate students about internships and encourage participation in one. The course is a joint effort between faculty, administration and staff members to provide necessary information about where to find an internship, how to get hired, and how to make the experience rewarding. With the help of our Internship Workbook, our students are able to navigate step-by-step through the stages of the internship process and are given detailed information such as preparing a resume and cover letter, networking development, proper interview attire, and etiquette at meals.

To be eligible for an internship, a student must have a 2.5 GPA or higher, and at least 60 credit hours (Junior status). 

The Career Field Experience Course

The Career Field Experience Course (IDIS 250), while very similar to an internship, is offered to students with at least 28 credit hours (sophomore status) and a GPA of 2.0 or higher. It is a great opportunity for students to work at a business or organization, and offers an early insight to the many benefits of experiencing the professional realm in a hands-on setting. Students can receive academic credit for either course, and ninety-five percent of all paperwork is completed by the college to help expedite the establishment of an internship or career field experience.
