Intern Program

The HR Management Internship is structured to meet part of the program requirements for the Associate in Applied Science degree, and to provide the student opportunity to relate classroom training to actual on-the-job situations and experiences.

Course Assessment

Student grades will be assigned, based upon the completion of a minimum number of hours per week in the performance of tasks within the definition of his/her major. The duties of the intern should be professional in nature, directly applicable to the field of study of the intern. Hours spent in the performance of duties outside the intern's field of study may not be counted in the required hours per week.

All required forms must be submitted in a timely manner in order for the student to receive credit for the internship. The final grade for the course will be determined by the faculty coordinator. Factors to be included in the determination of a final grade are the monthly activity reports, a final evaluation of the student which must be submitted by the work supervisor, and visitation(s) by the faculty coordinator with the student and/or supervisor.
