Students may accept an internship to train at an organization for a limited amount of time. When a student desires to train at another location, they must obtain the approval of their thesis mentor, the thesis committee chair, the Program Director, and the Associate Dean. All requests for internships will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
The student should submit a letter to provide the name and location of company/organization where internship will be preformed, duration of the internship, and a brief summary to explain how the internship will benefit their professional growth. The letter must be signed by the thesis mentor, thesis committee chair, and program director and submitted to the Coordinator. The Coordinator will send the letter to the Associate Dean for review. If approved, the student and company must also complete the “Student Internship Acknowledgement” form, which can be obtained from the Coordinator.
