PROFESSOR: RICHARD WATTS

Who is it for?

Students who have or are interested in getting an internship in Vermont while enrolled at UVM. 

Internships must be secured and approved by the instructor before the first class. The instructor is available to help you find an internship, but please review the Career Center's guide to finding an internship first. Also the CAS Internship page and then fill out the on-line helpform and make an appointment with the CAS Internship Coordinators. 

What is class like?

You will come together in class to talk about the challenges and opportunities of working in a professional setting. You will also connect the work done in your internship to possible careers and reflect on the skills and networks you are building.

The class meets once a month for 90 minutes; students are expected to spend an additional 8 hours per week outside of class at their internship site (for 3 credit hours). Assignments for the course will include: weekly journal entries reflecting and discussing the internship experience, a final reflection paper, a revised CV and cover letter, a Linked-In site for future job applications and an informational (or real) interview.

What qualifies as an internship? 

  • Generally a one-time experience
  • 1-8 months in length
  • Internships are distinguished from a short-term job or volunteer work is that there is an intentional “learning agenda” that is structured into the experience
  • Learning activities common to internships include learning objectives, observation, reflection, evaluation, and assessment
  • An effort is made to establish a reasonable balance between the intern’s learning goals and the specific work an organization needs done
  • Internships promote academic, career, and/or personal development
  • Intern positions cannot replace regular, paid, employee positions (i.e. If the company would regularly hire a person to do the work you are doing, but then decided to turn it into an internship position with no reduction in responsibility, or added learning components, then it should be classified as a job rather than an internship).
