- All students who take this class must prepare a poster that provides an overview of their experience gained during the internship. A PDF schema for the poster can be downloaded from here. For examples of completed posters, see the posters in the lobbies throughout the 4th floor of Old Main.

- If it is impossible to contact the work supervisor by the last day of the final exam week, a grade of F will be submitted.
- Generally, a student may register for one credit for each five hours a week of work that provides educational growth.
- Grades will be strongly influenced both by accomplishments and by the supervisor’s evaluation of skills and work habits.
- If you have any questions concerning the suitability of your planned internship email Dr. Flann.
- If you need advising help in integrating the internship into your program email Myra Cook Brown.
Undergraduate Research / Independent Study / Reading & Reports
