Undergraduate Credit-Bearing Internships

Academic Internships

What is an Academic, Credit-Bearing Internship?

According to the Council for Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (www.cas.edu) what distinguishes internships from other forms of active learning is that there is a degree of supervision and self-study that allows students to “learn by doing” and to reflect upon that learning and receive feedback in a way that achieves intentional learning goals and objectives. 

A credit-bearing internship at Millersville University is a supervised opportunity to apply classroom theory to practice and it is treated like any other academic course for which students are registered to earn credit toward graduation.  Collaborative faculty supervision and mentorship from supervising professionals in the field complements classroom learning, helps students develop critical career readiness competencies, and expands the knowledge of their discipline in an intentional learning environment.
