This 3-credit course is designed to provide majors with an internship experience that requires students to bring their classroom experience in actual field settings. 

The objective is to not only introduce students to P&CS contexts outside of the University, but to introduce the community to our P&CS students.  Creating alliances and building partnerships with community programs, non-profits, for-profits, and service learning has the potential to benefit all participants.

Resource materials include access to community networks established by faculty associates, as well as the Bennion Center, the Barbara L. and Norman C. Tanner Center for Non-Violent Human Rights Advocacy, and organizations and programs that already accept University undergraduate interns.

The internship MUST earn at least 3 credit hours of academic credit - no exceptions. Accommodations will not be made for previous internships that did not earn credit.
