Academic Credit and Assessment

Academic Credit

You have the option to add an academic credit component to the 10-week and 6-week internship programs. Academic credit is issued by our School of Record, Chapman University, which has a long history of commitment to international education. If you select this option, you will have standard written assignments to complete, in addition to the hours that you will work at the internship site.

Chapman University is an established university located in Orange, California, with a strong mission in developing global citizens. Chapman University is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities.

Learning Objectives

On successful completion of an Internship for Credit, students will:

  • gain knowledge and skills specific to their internship placement;
  • evaluate the experience from a scholarly perspective;
  • reflect upon the cultural experience from an analytical perspective;
  • reflect upon the experience from a personal perspective;
  • be able to provide critical assessment on the characteristics of an international internship and its role within a global context;
  • develop and/or acquire diverse generic skills.



Expectations of Intership Sites

Internship sites have been chosen to accept interns based on their willingness to devote the time, talent, and effort necessary to provide an optimal learning experience for the student intern. We believe these sites have sufficient supervisory staff capable of teaching and mentoring in a cooperative atmosphere. These sites, in conjunction with our own on-site staff, will provide an adequate orientation program for the student and will conduct regular evaluation and information sessions with the intern.
