Presentation Transcript

  1. PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE ACADEMIC INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

  2. High Level • Offered through the Division of Professional Practice • A second, differentiated experiential education “product” in addition to co-op

  3. Don't We Already Have Internships at UC? • Co-op program • Departmental internships • Career Development Center • Individual student efforts …The Academic Internship Program is a centralized, university wide program that exists in cooperation with these

  4. AIP Differentiation • Structured program • Two term sequence (primarily) • Support, advice, and guidance provided to students throughout the program • Open availability • Available to students in any major who are not required to participate in another experiential program (co-op, internship, etc….) • Junior status preferred (but Sophomores in good standing welcome) • Work 10-30 hours, while taking classes • Academically grounded • Earn academic credit • Participate in proven reflection and assessment exercises

  5. Two Tracks • 2 term sequence • Exploring Academic Internships (3 credit hours, classroom) • Preparation, help in finding an internship • Academic Internship (3 credit hours, online) • Reflection, assessment, and support while on internship • 1 term course • Individual Academic Internship (6-12 credit hours, online) • Designed for students who have secured an internship on their own, so do not need our help to secure one as offered in the Exploration course in the two term sequence • Combines/adapts content from 2 term sequence into a single online course taken while on internship

  6. Student Benefits • Learn more about their field of interest through observation and direct participation in a job setting • Establish future employment connections • Build on the skills learned in the classroom • Build their resume work experience • Explore professional interests

  7. Target Students • Students who… • want to gain professional experience, but don’t have an internship/co-op program in their department • want to explore potential professional areas • want to earn credit for an internship they have identified/secured

  8. Internship Specifics • Required minimum of 150 hours over the academic term (10 hours/week) • Usually part-time, but could be full-time • Students typically take classes while on internships

  9. Participating Companies • Over 200 organizations and companies such as… • Cincinnati Museum Center • Procter & Gamble • Salvation Army • Cincinnati Bell …Both for profit and not-for-profit, paid and unpaid opportunities

  10. How Do Students Get Started? • 2 term sequence • Sign up for PD3000 (Exploring Academic Internships) • This course is designed to help students prepare for and secure work for an internship • Students should take it in the term immediately preceding the term in which they want to intern • 1 term course (for students who have secured an internship on their own) • Speak with a Manager of Academic Internships
