There is a 240-hour internship required of all majors in the school. This equals six weeks of full-time work or a minimum of 20 hours per week for 12 weeks. Internships must be approved by your academic adviser and the school internship supervisor. Students must work in an off-campus organization and have a qualified professional (in the student’s major) supervise their work. Internships require weekly activity reports, a final letter from the employer, and completion of a questionnaire about the internship. The internship is normally done during the summer between the junior and senior years and must be completed before the last semester of the senior year. Students may not accept an internship before completing the course prerequisites, gaining approval from the major adviser, and turning in an approved agreement with the host agency. The internship requirement may be waived for students who can document comparable professional experience prior to the senior year. Students who intern without formal enrollment in the MCom111 Internship course will not be permitted to register for retroactive credit.
