Previous Internship Placements
(G&ES 450: Internship)


Internships under the course number GE&S 450 have been supervised during the summer since 1987. During that time we have placed a total of over 100 interns.

Students keep a daily journal, write an academic paper, and are evaluated by their employer on the basis of job performance. A minimum of three forty-hour weeks of work is required for a three-hour internship, six weeks of work for a six-hour internship, and so forth. Many interns choose to register for three hours of credit and, especially if they are being paid, continue to work beyond the minimum number of weeks required.

Arranged by location, our summer internship placements since the summer of 1987 are shown below.
