ACT 483 - Accounting Internship I


Permission of Internship Director required. Practical guided learning experience at a business or organization with the student spending at least 10 weeks (8 weeks in the summer) for a total of at least 120 hours of time at an internship site. Supervised placement provides experience appropriate to the student’s knowledge, skills and interests. In addition to the on-site activities, students take steps to customize and craft the internship experience, complete reflective activities and connect their experiential learning with their academics via course assignments. Performance evaluation assessment of the internship and self-assessment of learning occur at the end of the semester. Students can apply for pre-existing internships or consult with Assistant Director of Internships and their home department to discuss a new opportunity. All college policies related to internships apply. This internship requires completion of a series of online, asynchronous Modules that provide video instruction and guidance, promote reflection, deepen on-site engagement, and use discussion forums to facilitate peer-to-peer interactions. Please note, students who complete an internship in accounting or finance for academic credit in order to meet degree requirements cannot use the hours completed at the internship for the 1-year experience requirement for CPA licensure. Prereq: MGT*214 or BLDR*214, or BLDR*215 & BLDR*215*L plus Junior or Senior standing with GPA 2.5 or higher.
