Internships

Internships allow students to build skills in a professional environment.  Students must complete a set amount of hours performing assigned tasks and observing their chosen profession's dynamics.  Internships offer students the opportunity to experience an occupation before committing to that career.  Students can apply the theories and practical skills they learn in the classroom to internships.

The College encourages every student to at least consider taking an internship as part of the Rosemont experiential learning component.  Information on credit and non-credit internships is available in the Office of Experiential Opportunities and Post Graduate Success.

Full semester internships are student-initiated and can be arranged for qualified students in most disciplines with the approval of the faculty member in that field.  Students should seek information from their advisors or the Office of Experiential Opportunities and Post Graduate Success.

SIGNIFICANT CRITERIA FOR INTERNSHIPS INCLUDE:

  • The student must apply for internship credits in a timely manner, completing the forms available in the Office of Experiential Opportunities and Post Graduate Success by the end of drop/add period.
  • The application must include a detailed description of the terms of the internship and evaluative procedure to be used during the semester.
  • The student must spend a minimum of  thirty two hours at the internship site for every academic credit they receive.  Every student must have an on-site sponsor who takes responsibility for teaching the student, avoiding merely routine tasks.
  • The Office of Experiential Opportunities and Post Graduate Success will assist the faculty advisor in monitoring and evaluating the internship, visiting the site where feasible.
  • The student will keep a journal, write papers, or perform other reflective written assignments, as directed by their academic advisor.  These assignments are not necessarily the student's only obligation for the course.
  • There will be an evaluation form for the student and the supervisor as part of the internship experience.

Credits for internships will be determined by the department based on duration and academic merit of the internship.

Tamani Smalls - Internship with Norristown Police Department

I applied for an Internship with the Norristown Police Department during the Career Fair.  I was so eager to start an internship and followed up with the Police Department.  They called me in for an interview.  After the interview I was really anxious about it.  The Norristown Police Department then called me and said I got the internship.  I was super excited. I did the internship over the summer and had a phenomenal experience.
