IDST-315-01 College Internship Experience
Fall for 2013-2014
Spring for 2013-2014
This one-credit elective is for College sophomores, juniors, and seniors in good standing who will be participating in an internship during the semester of enrollment or in the previous summer. There will be required readings and postings through Blackboard that encourage the student to reflect on his or her internship experience and how it will shape his or her future educational and career aspirations. In lieu of class meetings, students will participate by submitting assignments through Blackboard and responding to postings from the instructor and fellow classmates on Blackboard.
Enrollment is by instructor permission only. A student must obtain an internship before enrolling in the course. If a student is interviewing with an organization that requests proof that the student can earn credit for the internship, the College Dean’s Office can provide a letter that explains that College sophomores, juniors, and seniors in good standing can earn credit through this course once the student has secured the internship.
Once a student has secured the internship, the student can enroll in the course and will receive an employer questionnaire that must be completed by the employer and returned to the instructor at the conclusion of the internship.
The one credit earned in this course counts toward the 120 credit total for the degree. It does not count toward the 38 courses required for the degree. Students who wish to enroll in the course a second time (or subsequent times) will have permission to enroll and the course will be recorded on the GU transcript, but the course will be marked as a “repeated” course and excluded from earned hours toward the degree. College students are still able to enroll in MGMT 311 ("Internship in Business") if they choose, but ultimately, only one credit from either IDST 315 or MGMT 311 can count toward the degree.
