Bridging the Classroom and the Workplace
Field placements help to bridge the gap between classroom theory and practical on-the-job application. While earning credit, you can apply concepts learned through your coursework to help expand your learning.
Choices abound for students interested in internships. In fact, in many majors, you may select an internship that would best suit your career interests and goals. A typical internship is a commitment of 8 to 10 hours a week for a semester, totaling 120 hours.
Several majors at Stevenson also offer clinical or field experiences beginning in the second year. These placements provide structured hands-on learning experiences in an area related to your course of study.
Internships and other field placements offer you the chance to:
• Connect classroom theory to a "real world" setting
• Earn academic credit
• Identify career settings and opportunity
• Network within your field
• Build your resume
• Discover your values, interests, skills, and abilities
