A summary reflection presentation/paper/project will be prepared and delivered by the student at the completion of the Internship. The student's performance will be evaluated by the Faculty Internship Coordinator based on accomplishment of the objectives in the learning contract and satisfactory evaluations by the employer/site supervisor. No experiential credit will be given for previous work or research experience. Prerequisites: minimum GPA of 3.0, sophomore standing, and approval of the Faculty Internship Coordinator.
