CCT410H5 Communication, Culture, Information and Technology Internship Course

Course Overview:

Many students at CCIT plan to take an internship as part of their degree. Internships provide a valuable learning experience by giving students a look at the day-to-day operations of an actual company or institution. Most importantly, internships provide opportunities for students to network and make future job contacts with companies in their area of interest. Knowledge, maturity and people skills are all significant by-products of the CCIT internship program. We try to serve as matchmakers if you let us know what kind of position interests you. Internships also are found through word-of-mouth and personal contacts. You can always contact a company or organization of interest and see if they employ interns or would consider it. To successfully complete a full credit of internship, the student is required to fulfill a work commitment of 200 hours on site (which is approximately equivalent to one day per week of the academic year). Students will register for a half credit at a time. The scheduling of the work commitment is completely flexible, and is to be worked out by mutual agreement between the student and the employer.

Prerequisites: Completion of 13.0 credits and permission of the instructor.
