Students may receive credit for internships in one of two ways:
Some internship programs and practicum-based courses have been pre-approved by the department of Health and Society (for a list, see Internship Guide.) Students must inform their advisors in writing that these credits are being used for the experiential learning requirement.
Students are also encouraged to find other internships that fit their academic and professional goals. In order to receive credit, students must:
- Find an internship site. Consult the Internship Guide for help.
- Consult with their academic advisor to prepare an internship plan
- Register the internship with the registrar. Students can find credit internship registration forms on the LAPC website.
- Fill out the Health and Society Internship Contract.
- Complete required weekly reflections, final reflection paper and academic paper.
