Credit Internship Program at St. Kate's

The credit internship program at St. Catherine University is one component of an extensive career planning process available to students through the Career Development office. It is designed to give students the opportunity to undertake a professionally supervised and planned work experience that relates to their academic program and career interests.

An academic internship is a form of experiential education that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting. Students earn academic credit, or there is some other connection to a degree-granting, educational institution. This work/learning arrangement is overseen by a faculty or staff member of an educational institution and by a designated employee of an organization. The credit internship is usually the length or equivalent of an academic term. It may be part-time or full-time, paid or unpaid. An integral component of the experience that distinguishes it from other types of work is one or more forms of structured and deliberate reflection contained within learning agendas or objectives.
