Degree candidates in the IT Program undertake an onsite learning opportunity of no fewer than forty hours of onsite work (with or without compensation). They do this internship with a company or organization that is non-profit, governmental, or community based. IT Internship links classroom learning to student interest by allowing students to gain experience in an applied work setting. Through direct work-related experiences, students become acquainted with the internship site's work and mission, as well as the way this work and mission potentially relate to both their academics and the organization's position in the industry or field. Students produce a critical reflection on their internship, explaining how they have addressed specific learning goals.
