Emerson College expects that interns will work within a professional office environment, with a commercial lease. As a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), Emerson College also expects that their internship will follow the below criteria:
- The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
- The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
- The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
- There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.
- There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
- There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.
- There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals. Students should not provide their own computer, cell phone, camera, or any other equipment for duties related to their internship.
Internship Fairs at Emerson
Each fall and spring semester, we coordinate an internship fair for organizations to advertise internships and recruit Emerson students. Internship Fairs provide an opportunity to share company information, meet with prospective interns, and collect résumés from qualified students. Undergraduate and graduate students from all programs typically attend so you can count on a diverse and solid candidate pool.
