Students are given projects on a daily or weekly basis depending on the size of the project (students work 2 days a week, 4-5 hours approximately each day). All project assignments are on a calendar for students to see in advance what new projects they will be expected to complete. In addition to assigned projects, students are highly encouraged to brainstorm, create, develop, and complete a creative project that enhances their classroom learning, focuses on their career goals and can serve as their portfolio for future career search.
This internship may be completed for credit toward a degree; however, it is the student’s sole responsibility to contact the appropriate university faculty and administrators to determine eligibility, registration and completion of all necessary coursework to earn the credits.
