The eight-week, full-time summer internship program is open to students in all majors. Students intern 40 hours a week and earn 6 hours of credit at their home school or at SUNY Brockport. The program offers a mandatory evening course that meets one or two nights a week. The course covers experiential education, internship advice, career and job tips, and topical issues, and often features guest speakers. Students must keep an internship journal, write a final five-page evaluation of their internship, and complete four short papers on topics covered by the guest speakers.
Students are responsible for securing the permission of their home school to participate in the summer internship program. Once students are accepted at their home school and by the SUNY Brockport Washington office, program staff work with them to help them obtain an internship. Most internships are unpaid and the program cannot guarantee any student a paid internship.
