School of Arts and Sciences | Religious Studies Internships and Service Learning
The academic internship program at Ursuline College is an experiential education opportunity that provides the link between the classroom and the workplace. It is an opportunity for the student to learn about her/his area of academic interest through practical experience.
The internship experience involves an academic relationship between the student, faculty advisor, coordinator of experiential education, and the employer. It is an opportunity for the student to augment coursework and on-the-job assignments related to her/his academic interests (major). It is a carefully monitored work or service experience in which the student has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what she/he is learning throughout the experience. An internship is a single-semester or finite time period that may be paid or unpaid, and is always for academic credit.
