Online Internship Orientation

To complete the online internship orientation, please review all the information below. If you have not done so already, read the internship program overview and the internship handbook in its entirety.

Summary of the Internship Program in Four Steps


1. Prepare

Confer with your academic adviser prior to making a final decision about your program of study. Working with your adviser, you'll develop ideas for your internship curriculum that support the focus of your degree as well as your particular interests.

You and your adviser will also discuss the number of credits you will earn. In general:

1 academic credit = 30 contact hours with the internship site
2 academic credits = 60 contact hours
3 academic credits = 90 contact hours

In many cases, before applying for an internship, you'll need a resume, cover letter, and be prepared to interview. We can assist you with these steps.

2. Select an Internship Site
Select an internship site based on your desired learning and focus of study. Some students select sites based on the possibility of getting a job.

The site you choose must have a site supervisor. This is someone who is willing to assist you with your learning, support and sign your internship contract, and complete an evaluation.

Here is a list of organizations that have participated in the Marylhurst University Internship Program.

3. Formalize the Internship
Register for your department's internship course using the Internship Registration Form. Both your career services internship instructor and your academic adviser must sign this form.

By the second week of your internship, you'll prepare a contract outlining the learning that will take place during the internship. This contract is submitted to the career services office as soon as it is signed. Your site supervisor also retains a copy.

A sample of a learning contract is available in the internship handbook.

4. Document Your Internship
During your partnership, keep track of your time using timesheets or another method such as an Excel spreadsheet.

At the end, you'll write a report documenting your learning objectives and how they were accomplished, discussing problems and successes, and reflecting on the overall internship experience.

Concerns and Problems

If you have any concerns or problems during your internship, contact your career services internship instructor immediately.
