Student looking for Internship?
The MCJ Dept. offers internships for credit (via the MCJ 191: Internship course) during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.
If you are an MCJ major or minor, you are eligible to take the MCJ 191: Internship course and receive college credit for your internship. Further details are below. While you can only receive a maximum of 3.0 units of credit for MCJ 191 toward your degree, you may enroll in the course as many times as you wish.
If you want to take the MCJ 191 course and earn college credit for your internship, here's what to do:
1. See Prof. Betsy Hays during her office hours to get the ball rolling. Please contact her for current office hours.
2. Find your internship. See Internship/Job Listings for some ideas, but do note that this is not an exclusive or exhaustive list. Please also note that your internship supervisor (the person you are “working for” at your internship) must have a minimum of five years of full-time experience in the field you want to learn about. If you wish to intern for someone whom the Department has not worked with before, a resume of your potential supervisor will be required.
3. Secure your internship. Contact them, meet them, and wow them!
4. Fill out and submit the Internship Application Form. It is a two page document — you fill out the first part and your internship supervisor fills out the second part. Click here to download, fill it out, and give it to Prof. Hays.
5. Once your internship is approved, you will be given a permission number to enroll in the course. This permission number will be emailed to you by Prof. Hays.
6. Enroll in the course using the permission number.
7. Start your hours — you need to complete minimum of 150 through the course of the semester.
8. Once you have completed 75 hours, fill out and submit the Mid-Term Self-Evaluation Form .
9. When you are finished with your internship (150 hours), complete the Final Self-Evaluation Form . This is due the last day of classes for the semester.
10. Once you've completed your internship, you also need to have your on-site supervisor complete and submit the MCJ 191 Supervisor Eval Form Form explaining how well you performed your internship duties. This form is also due on the last day of classes for the semester.
