Program Description:
PLEASE NOTE: The deadline to be considered for a research project or micro-internship curated by the Career Development Center or Office of Undergraduate Research has passed.  Students may still apply to the Junior Practicum Program, but they must either identify their own internship opportunity or participate in the Career Readiness and Skill-Building Summit only.  Students will still be able to receive winter term project credit for these experiences. The final deadline to submit an application is July 30th.

Program Overview:
The Junior Practicum Program provides third-year students with a unique and engaging opportunity to develop new knowledge and skills related to career readiness and research. 

This practicum program will kick off with a Career Readiness and Skill-Building Summit throughout the month of September and will involve a variety of faculty, staff, industry leaders, and alumni delivering interactive workshops on technical skills and professional development. Students who successfully complete the Summit will receive winter term project credit. Please note that this program is the only option for juniors to receive winter term project credit in the 2020-21 academic year.

At the conclusion of the Summit (between October-December), juniors have the option to engage in experiential practice in one of two ways: 
  • Career Communities remote micro-internship with an alumni or parent sponsor
  • Remote research-based project with a faculty mentor
Note: Students may select to participate in the Summit only for winter term project credit and not the experiential practice. Students who complete both the Summit and experiential practice are eligible to receive up to $800 for their work. 

Timeline:
  • Career Readiness Summit - September 8 - October 2 (winter term project credit)
  • Micro-Internship OR Research Project - October 12 - December 4 (exact dates flexible based on individual assignments)
