The Global Internship Course is designed to be completed alongside an internship placement, allowing students to earn academic credit. Students will attend weekly, discussion-led sessions that include educational support and mentoring in a classroom environment; develop personal and professional skills; learn to contextualize their internship experience socially and culturally; and employ the use of Globally Networked Learning technology to conduct a comparative global analysis in collaboration with other CAPA students. At times, this analysis will be facilitated through CAPA Masterclasses led by professionals in a diverse range of fields.
