Semester programs are 12 – 15 weeks depending on location. Language proficiency is not required and in non-English speaking locations language courses are part of the program. Students participate in a Career Development Program and are matched individually to an internship approved by the Study Abroad office and relevant faculty.
Most students completing a Study Abroad Internship can receive 12 Credits. This translates to 240-480 internship hours + an Academic Component. The Academic Component includes weekly reflective journals, a culminating final project, informational interviews, updated resume, critical book reviews assigned by department intern faculty and selected readings in the student’s major of career field.
