Pre-Grad School

The pre-graduate school internship is a six academic credit course alternative to the basic internship. Students who plan to attend graduate school directly after commencement may fulfill their internship requirement by completing a pre-graduate school internship with a faculty member.

The pre-graduate school internship is designed to prepare students for the intensive academic work expected at the graduate level. The student is required to plan, with the help of a faculty supervisor, a project related to graduate school goals. The project must involve a minimum of 240 hours of career-related work, and ongoing supervision by the faculty supervisor.

Students are expected to view the internship as a graduate level experience and to follow through accordingly. Student interns and faculty supervisors have easy access to the Director of Career Services for consultation and guidance related to any aspect of their involvement with the pre-graduate school option. Such contact is encouraged. For more information or to schedule an appointment please stop by the Office of Career Services, GTL Learning Commons, call (607) 735 -1830 or email
