Internships and Experiential Learning - Master of Arts in Educational Studies - New Media and New Literacies


The required internship is an integral part of the New Media and New Literacies course of study and often cited by students as one of their most valued experiences in the program. It is an opportunity for you to expand and apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired in the classroom to problems of new media and new literacies in professional settings.

The internship affords the opportunity to gain experience in one of your areas of interest while under the guidance and support of an experienced professional working in that area and in interaction with university instructors, staff and resources. It should be a forum from which to gain firsthand experience, as well as a time to critically reflect upon what is being learned in your university coursework. You will work with your faculty advisor and program staff to identify internship opportunities that align with your educational and career goals.

The EDUC 638 course provides professional support as you apply your learning in professional practice and reflect on your successes and areas for continued growth.
