Practica and Internships
What makes Practicum and Internships unique?
Practicum provides students with an opportunity to observe experts in a given field, introducing them to the practical applications of subject matter encountered through coursework. Designed as an initial experience for students, practicum may carry from 1 to 3 credit hours. Some departments require hands-on experience as part of the internship.
Internships offer students who have completed significant coursework in their chosen majors with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the field under the supervision of an on-site professional. The purpose of internships is to enable students to draw intellectual connections between what they have learned in coursework and what they learn on the internship site, which they make explicit through a final project incorporating both academic work and insights gained through the internship experience. Internships can be designed such that they carry from 3 to 9 credit hours.
Who is eligible for practicum and internships?
Albertus Magnus College students in good academic standing (G.P.A. of at least 2.0) may participate in:
- Practicum once they have completed 45 credits
- Internship once they have completed 60 credits
To be eligible to participate in practicum or internship, students must be registered for an internship or a practicum course, meet with the Office of Career & Professional Development, submit all required documentation through Handshake, as well as complete any other requirements based on their major. Students must be available for at least 8-10 hours per week (3 credit experience) and have their own transportation. The schedules of sites and industries vary. Most sites are only available to supervise interns during regular business hours.
" If you obtain an internship, it's important to work hard and learn everything you possibly can because they will put you in areas that will allow you to achieve more success and opportunities."
