Bassett internships offer you the opportunity to earn academic credit while gaining valuable real-world work experience.
Pre-Internship information sessions, either through The Edge or through the Academic Department Liaison, are strongly recommended
160 hours recommended – 130 required for academic credit
Daily reflective journal of internship activities and learning
Student will work with/through appropriate Academic Department Liaison
Academic Department Liaisons interview each student intern to determine each student's internship objectives.
In most cases, the Academic Department Liaison is responsible for recruiting, selecting and vetting appropriate sites to match departmental learning objectives.
Students may participate directly in the selection/development of a particular site (i.e. find their own internship), but all placements must be approved by the Academic Department Liaison and each internship must meet admission and participation requirements and meet the learning objectives of the department and the Bassett Internship Program as a whole.
See Bassett Internship application process, step-by-step for detailed instructions for planning a Bassett Internship.
