Internship credits can be earned anytime during your studies.
You will be permitted to register for PSM 691 once you have turned in your internship request form. It is the PSM coordinator's responsibility to register students for PSM 691, so do not go to your program director. Each student needs to complete a minimum of 4 credits of PSM 691 for their degree, and the course can be taken for 1, 2, 3, 4, or 9 credits at a time. This flexibility allows you to select an appropriate number of PSM credits in a semester to maintain full-time status or to limit the semester expenses.
As the internship begins to draw to a close to an end, it will be time to think about completing the final requirements.
Three things are required:
- Submit a written report: This report should be reviewed and approved by your internship advisor before it is sent to your graduate program director and the PSM coordinator. Report guidelines are attached.
- Give an oral presentation on your internship: The contents of this presentation should be approved by your internship advisor and the date and forum for your presentation can be arranged with your graduate program director.
- Important: Students who got their internship in the Summer or early Fall have to have their presentation at the internship showcase. The students who had their internship in late Fall and Winter semester should arrange the presentation for the last Friday of the semester.
- Be evaluated by your internship advisor: Once your internship is completed, the PSM coordinator will send a request to your advisor asking him or her to fill out a short evaluation. Final grades for PSM 691 will not be impacted by this evaluation since it is mostly an evaluation of the program and not of the student.
And that's it! Any questions should be addressed to the PSM coordinator, who is always willing to sit down and talk about things with students.
