Each student is required to complete two internships, a 3 credit “organizing” internship (135 hours) and a 2 credit “policy” internship (90 hours). Each internship experience requires (1) a contract that is agreed upon by the sponsoring organization, the student, and the MAPL Internship Coordinator, (2) a supervisor evaluation report, and (3) a capstone paper describing what the student has learned.
There are five steps involved in completing both your 3-credit and your 2-credit internship experiences.
A Note about Registering for Internships: It is preferable to register for your internship credits the semester you are planning to do your internship -- or within a semester. It is easier for you to complete your internship experience in a timely fashion when you have just registered for it. And whenever you do register for internship credits, keep in mind you must have registered for all of your classes by the end of the 2nd week of classes.
