Internship involves the development of job skills by providing the student with a structured employment situation that is directly related to, and coordinated with, the educational program. Student activity in internship is planned and coordinated jointly by an institutional representative and the employer, with the employer having the responsibility for control and supervision of the student on the job. Work is normally completed in the learning environment but may include out-of-class assignments. Ratio: 5:1 (one hour of credit for five hours of “internship” instruction as defined.
