Internship Program Overview
The internship is designed as a capstone experience typically taken during the last semester of a student’s college program. This course allows students to combine learning in the classroom with field experience. An agreement is signed by the student, Worksite Supervisor, and Mid Michigan College's Career Center Director to establish training objectives and employer expectations. The student must meet specific program prerequisites to participate.
