Internships/Work-Based Learning

Course 7912      Fee $30.00
Work-Based Learning gives the student the opportunity to learn a variety of skills by expanding the walls of the classroom learning to include the community. By narrowing the gap between theory and practice, Work-Based Learning creates meaning for students. The internship is a ‘capstone’ program for students to have a ‘real-world ‘experience through a mentored internship. The internship coordinator will place students in an appropriate business site. Students may request a specific business.
