Internship Course


Most companies require you to be earning school credit while you are interning. 

We provide a low cost way of making that happen. 

This is a purely online course, available Fall, Spring, & Summer semesters, and we welcome students ​from any CSU campus at any grade level, including post-grad.

Check out the full Summer 2020 SYLLABUS - registration starts on April 21st.​​​


Course Requirements

      • You must secure your own internship in order to participate in the course.
      • This course is designed for students who need credit or verification of being a student.
      • You are responsible for ensuring (with your counselor / department head) that your units are eligible for transfer to your CSU. Most are, but it is always good to be sure beforehand if the credits are something you need.
      • Students must complete a minimum of 100 hours per semester, which works out to roughly 7 hours a week during the Spring or Fall, more for the Summer. Make sure you schedule enough hours to fulfill this requirement. You can work more than 100 hours, if this is what is required from their internship site or if it is something you want to do.
      • Social Media Participation is required. Follow @CSUEA on TwitterFacebook, & Instagram
      • Please keep in mind that all forms must be completed through Submittable (instructions below) and there is NO iLEARN for this course.

Readings

There will be a few suggested readings and videos about making the most of internships, writing resumés, problem solving at the workplace and preparing for interviews. These readings were chosen with the idea of empowering students as they prepare for the job market, including thinking strategically about how to approach it, and develop a thoughtful, organized, and proactive plan for job hunting.


​INSTRUCTIONS​​ - PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROCESS HAS CHANGED AS OF JAN 14, 2020 so please read through!

There are four forms that need to be completed over the course of your internship including:

        • An intitial application/agreement on Submittable​. On this form, there will be a place to send an agreement to your employer for them to fill out.
        • A midterm report - will be sent to you through your Submittable application. This will also send out your Employer Review (see below.)
        • A final report - will be sent to you through your Submittable application.
        • ​​​​​​Supervisor Evaluation - This form is sent directly to the supervisor through your MIDTERM (*​in the summer course, this will be sent out with your FINAL report) in the middle of the semester. ​Please remind your Supervisor at least one week before the deadline.
        • ​​Instructions for starting your Submittable Forms
