Earn 6 credits through the combination of an internship placement and the required Global Cities Internship course. The course enables students to develop personal and professional skills, and empowers them to effectively articulate the value of their internship and other experiences for future professional opportunities. Please note that the Global Internship Course may be taught online or in person.
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, contextualize their internship experience socially and culturally; and employ the use of Globally Networked Learning technology to conduct a comparative global analysis with other CAPA students. At times, this analysis will be facilitated through CAPA Masterclasses led by professionals in a diverse range of fields.
