Internships


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

Saint Francis University conducts a program of internships designed to introduce an experiential element into a student's plan of studies. Saint Francis University students have interned in a variety of settings, from radio and T.V. stations to accounting firms, to the U.S. White House, gaining experiences relevant to their fields of study.

Students desiring an internship should contact their academic advisor or the department chair to begin planning for the internship experience. A student may present no more than 15 hours of internship credit toward graduation requirements and no more than nine hours of internship credit for the major.

All students must complete an associated project, a study, or essay related to the internship. This project will be divided into two categories (graded credits with a 398 course number and pass/fail credits with a 399 course number) as follows:

  Total Credits Graded Credits (398) Pass/Fail Credits (399)
  1 - 5 1 0 - 4
  6 - 10 2 4 - 8
  11 - 15 3 8 - 12


Students will be required to keep a daily log or journal as part of the project grade and are required to read a book pertinent to the internship setting, writing a brief review of the book as seen from the perspective of the internship.

All Saint Francis University internship sites will be visited by the supervising Saint Francis University faculty member at least once during the semester that the internship is being offered.
