An internship

An Internship:

  • Is a time-limited experience that can range from one month to one year, but usually lasts about three months.

  • Includes an intentional “learning plan” that is structured into the experience.

  • Promotes academic, career and/or personal development.

  • Typically includes learning objectives, observations, reflections, evaluation and assessment.

  • Balances the intern’s learning goals with the specific work the organization needs completed.

  • May be part-time or full-time.

  • Has an existing employee working in the department/position to mentor and supervise the intern.
