Check out our COM approved internships
below on Handshake,
NAU’s online job and internship platform. Providers
are consistently posting available internships, so check back
often. Make sure that you have the skill set the internship provider wants
and follow-up with them as instructed in the in the internship posting.
We encourage all COM
students to find a great internship opportunity for themselves. Then you want
to check with faculty in your program and the Internship Coordinator to see if
the internship is eligible for credit.
Once you have the position, you need to fill
out an Internship Contract and fill it out completely. Generally, each semester hour
of credit equates to 50 work hours. For example, if you wanted to earn 3
semester hours of credit, you’d have to work 150 hours during the semester,
that’s about 10 hours per week.
The Contract needs a faculty in your program
to sign before it comes to the Internship Coordinator for signature.
