Frequently Asked Questions about CSB Student Internships
1. What is an Internship
An internship is a structured learning experience in a work setting. It is any carefully monitored work or service experience in which a student has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what she or he is learning throughout the experience.
An important element that distinguishes an internship from a short-term job or volunteer work is that an intentional “learning agenda” is structured into the experience. Learning activities common to most internships include learning objectives, observation, reflection, evaluation and assessment. Internships promote academic, career and/or personal development.
Internships take place in the academic year or the summer. Internship programs can be found at private corporations, government offices and nonprofit organizations.
2. When can a Student complete an Internship?
A student is welcome to complete an internship at any time. In order to receive academic credit, the student must meet criteria set forth by the academic department, for which he/she is receiving credit. For information about specific departmental requirements, please see the Department Chair or Jack Stair.
Please note, that whether the student receives credit or not, an internship is an important part of pre-professional preparation, and all students should be encouraged to complete an internship.
3. How does a student sign up for an internship for academic credit?
Internship credit counts toward business electives, only in IS, OM & International Business can an internship count for concentration electives, so many students do not need the credit offered by internships. If the student need business elective credit then:
- The student will need to be hired by an organization
- The student will need to meet the departmental requirements. For details please see http://csb.uncw.edu/serviceLearning/interndept.htm
- The student needs to identify a faculty member in the department in which they wish to receive credit.
- The student, faculty & internship provider will fill out an experiential education internship registration form. Form can be downloaded from http://uncw.edu/reg/documents/Internship_form.pdf
4. If a student is eligible to receive academic credit for an internship, do they have to pay for the credit hours?
Yes, internship credit is counted as course credits towards graduation. The student pays for the number of credit hours they are enrolled for.
Please note that if the student will be completing an internship in the summer for credit, then they will have to pay separate summer school tuition & fees.
5. Are there any other fees associated with internships for academic credit?
Yes, students are required to purchase internship liability coverage. This $17 charge is automatically added to their tuition bill when they register for the internship.
