Placement Model

  • 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.
