iNTRODUCTORY INTERNSHIP (SM 3870):

You must pre-apply before you can seek, accept or complete an introductory internship.  No exceptions!  Before searching for a site, it is vital that you discuss your options with your advisor.  

You are required to work three hours per week for each credit hour registered (e.g., 3 credit introductory internship = 9 hours per week).  For a spring and fall introductory internship, you must work 15 weeks beginning and ending with the regular semester. For the summer, you are allowed to work total hours (3 credits = 135 total hours; 4 credits = 180 total hours; 5 credits = 225 total hours) and this may be completed on-or off-campus. 

Getting enrolled in an introductory internship is easy. Once you have pre-applied you may seek a site.  

  • Obtain the site confirmation form from your advisor.
  • Check the introductory internship dates to make sure you turn the forms in on time.
  • Once the site has accepted you, complete the confirmation form (form must be signed by the agency where you will be completing the introductory internship).  
  • Once the confirmation form is completed and signed by the site turn it in to your advisor who will check to make sure it is completed correctly.  Your advisor will forward the forms to the field experience coordinator who will register you. 

You can’t register for the introductory internship through internet registration. The field experience coordinator will register you for the introductory internship once you have completed the pre-application process and confirmation form.  Once registered, you will be able to use Canvas to obtain all course materials.  We will not be able to register you if you have any “holds” on your account or if registering you will take you over 18 hours.

You must complete the introductory internship with a grade of B or better, a total of 75 credit hours completed and have a 2.5 overall GPA to be eligible to complete a capstone internship. No exceptions!  

Before searching for a site, you must pre-apply (pre-application can be found on this webpage under Important Forms) and consult your advisor to discuss information regarding the capstone internship requirements. You are required to work 40 hours per week for the entire semester. Capstone internships must coincide with the regular BGSU semester and be off campus. Summer capstone interns will be required to be at the site immediately after spring semester ends. You must complete the capstone internship off campus and it may not be the same site as your introductory internship.
