Qualifications

To what extent does your internship fall into one or more of the following internship categories?

 

  1. Industry Focused: Internships of this type have the primary purpose of introducing students to a particular industry, making professional connections, engaging in observerships*, and exploring a field. Student can enroll for 1-4 units, depending on requirements the faculty adviser and student determine; graded P/F.
    *Observerships are typically practiced in the performing arts in which the internship takes the form of an experience that engages the student in participant-observation work and provides access to controlled spaces in the field, such as the rehearsal room, casting office, or board room. These experiences provide opportunities to study the creative process as well as other activities by observing or assisting advanced practitioners. Students should work closely with their advisers to design the research questions framing their observation.

     

  2. Service-Based Learning: These types of internships are geared toward learning through community service; students provide service for non-profits, NGOs, or other public institutions; these internships are closely linked to the student’s academic interests at Gallatin. Student can enroll for 1-4 units, depending on requirements the faculty adviser and student determine; graded P/F.

     

  3. Embedded in a Gallatin Course: These internships are integrally linked to a particular course at Gallatin. The course instructor and the Internship Program design these internships. Embedded internships have specific learning objectives that are related to course content.  The course instructor, instead of the student’s faculty adviser, supervises and grades this types of internship. Embedded internships are limited to 2 units and students receive a letter grade instead of the usual P/F.

     

  4. Research Internship: These types of internships have a very specific, academic agenda. Their purpose is for students to experience or practice specific research (e.g. science labs, data collection) linked to their academic fields of interest. These internships are geared toward graduate students or undergraduate students interested in working in science or social science organizations. Student can enroll for 1-4 units, depending on academic workload determined by faculty adviser and student.
