We encourage our students to seek internships during their college careers. The opportunities for practical learning are enormous. The benefits for career training are obvious. The department will assist students in identifying appropriate internship opportunities, preparing application materials and assessing assigned academic materials for credit hours.
Our students have had great success in securing internships at local, state, federal and international levels, in all branches of government, in the private and public sectors. When academic requirements are met, you can earn academic credit for substantive internships.
The following forms are required of the employer or supervisor for our students to obtain academic credit for their work.
All forms can be emailed to Eric.Jepsen@usd.edu or faxed (Attention: Eric Jepsen) to 605-677-8808.
