Contact hours and assessment for a McCusker Centre internship
You are required to complete a minimum 100 hours for your internship. For internships taken over a regular semester, this equates to 8 hours or one day per week with your host organisation. Summer and Winter internships are usually undertaken over a shorter period e.g. 3 - 4 weeks.
Assessment consists of a mandatory induction session, three reflective journals and a final presentation which reflects on your learning. These assessments must be completed, regardless of whether you are undertaking an internship for 6 points or 0 points of credit.
For undergraduate students enrolling in SVLG1002 (6 points), more information can be found in the handbook.
For graduate students enrolling in SVLG5001 (6 points), more information can be found in the handbook.
From 2018, handbook entries will also be available for SVLG1006 (0 points) and SVLG5900 (0 points).
In special circumstances, some graduate students may be permitted to undertake an extended (12 point) internship. Assessment in these cases will be negotiated between the Academic Coordinator of the McCusker Centre for Citizenship and the student’s Course Coordinator.
