The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) provides the following internship definition and criteria: An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting.
Internships give students an opportunity to gain experience and make connections in fields they are considering for career paths, and give employers an opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.
NACE Seven Criteria for Internships
- The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
- The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
- The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
- There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
- There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
- There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
- There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.
Academic Credit for Internships
Decisions regarding whether or not a student will be able to receive academic or practical experience credit for an internship are made only at the academic departmental / advisor level. The student is responsible for initiating the application for academic credit. Most academic credit internships have learning guidelines and agreements.
