Academic Internship Course

Students receive academic credit for participating in a pre-approved internship not just for the work you do for your internship employer, but by engaging in reflection about this experience through completing assignments as part of the academic internship course. This course runs concurrently with other fall and spring semester courses. In addition, during the summer, students can enroll in a 9-week academic internship course.

Course Requirements

• 1 Mandatory Orientation - Before you start your academic internship, make plans to attend this in-person orientation. Dates for the Mandatory Orientation can be found in Handshake under events or on your FoxLink registration. 

• Assignments are online through Blackboard and e-mail correspondence with your Rollins instructor.

• This course is Credit/No Credit based on completion of online assignments and hours worked at the internship site.
