The internship program is designed to provide students engaged in a field experience with an opportunity to share their insights, to explore the links between students' academic preparation and their field work, and to assist participants in developing and carrying out the major research project which will serve to culminate their internship experience. In addition to the major research project, students will be required to submit several brief reports.

Course Requirements and Grading

This is a three credit (part-time) or six credit (full-time) course in which students who are interning must enroll. In addition to the major research project, written work for the course includes analysis of agency/organization activities and a statement of research design.

The grade for this course will be determined as follows:

Journals 10%
Analysis of Agency/Organization Activities 25%
Research Design 25%
Research Paper 40%

Attendance at the two seminar meetings is mandatory; you must stay for the entire seminar to receive credit. Failure to attend the seminar will result in a failing grade for the course.

Statement on Academic Dishonesty

Academic dishonesty is defined to include any form of cheating and /or plagiarism. Cheating includes, but is not limited to, such acts as stealing or altering testing instruments; falsifying the identity of persons for any academic purpose; offering, giving, or receiving unauthorized assistance on an examination, quiz, or other written or oral material in a course; of falsifying information on any type of academic record. Plagiarism is the presentation of written or oral material in a manner which conceals the true source of documentary material, or the presentation of material which uses hypotheses, conclusions, evidence, data, or the like, in a way that the student appears to have done work which he/she did not, in fact, do.
