The W&J faculty has established internships so that students might better acquaint themselves with the environmental, pre-vocational, political, social, educational, or technical circumstances of our society. The central component of the internship is an off-campus, participatory experience, under the guidance and supervision of a qualified practitioner in the field.
The internship experience must involve academic content. Time spent in the field may be reduced by the amount of time necessary to complete academic requirements or materials for evaluation;
The faculty advisor of the internship or the chair of the department offering the internship may require additional academic requirements for the student to complete, where it seems appropriate;
Internships are offered primarily during Intersession and they are graded as satisfactory/unsatisfactory;
A student may take no more than two internships for credit;
Both internships may be taken in the same department;
A student must have an overall grade point average of 2.50 or higher (on a 4.00 scale) to take an internship;
A student on academic probation may not take an internship.

Many students elect to pursue internships over the summer term. If the student wishes to pursue course credit for such an experience, it is considered to be a summer course and is subject to the summer session course fee.
