The purpose of the Academic Internship Program is for students to develop relevant career learning experience and enable them to combine academic study and practical experience for academic credit.
The Academic Internship Program is a structured form of professional field experience at Robert Morris University and is available to all students enrolled in a degree-granting program. For the purposes of these policies, academic internships are defined as a cooperative education experience, externship, and internship. Academic internship positions are reviewed by the Career Center for substance and then approved by the appropriate academic department heads. The Career Center, academic departments, and students share in the joint responsibility to ensure that high standards are maintained for academic internship positions.
