Internship Course

GE 298 (3) | Global Experiences International Internship

This 3-credit course is delivered alongside the internship placement and enables students to develop their own professional abilities, draw on their StrengthsFinder attributes to navigate their assigned duties, and cultivate an understanding of the business norms of the host culture. Interns may be tasked with a variety of projects, events or presentations. Students will utilize Gallup coaching, mentoring, and reflective exercises to develop their professional skills and industry knowledge. This will be an applied learning experience. Internships will require students to continually assess and interpret different work styles, industry methods and cultural approaches to their chosen profession. Students will gain self-awareness of their own Strengths, have developed intercultural understanding of foreign work culture, gained professional work experience, and completed career communication essentials such as an online LinkedIn profile, interview skills, and networking training.
