How do I get credit for an internship at Pratt?
- Attend an Internship Workshop -or- Meet with Internship Program Manager (call 718-636-3506 for an appointment any time)
- Meet with your department (Internship Faculty, Assistant Chair or Chair)
If you choose to use elective studio credis toward an internship experience, you will be enrolling for a course within your department during the same semester you are participating in the internship.
**Pratt does not offer retroactive registration or credits for any experiential education opportunities (i.e. a student doing a summer internship who wants to enroll for credit but wants the credits to count towards the fall instead of the summer).
What does it mean to get credit for an internship?
- Students enroll into a departmental internship course taught by a departmental internship faculty member. [See Internship Faculty Contacts 2012 PDF Below]
- Internships typically last one semester; 12-15 weeks.
- Requires a student to work a minimum number of hours during the semester:
· Zero credit option (summer only) = 60-80 hours minimum
· 1 credit option = 120 hours minimum
· 2 credit option = 180 hours minimum
· 3 credit option = 240 hours minimum (Some departments allow for more credits such as Construction & Facilities Mgmt.)
**A credit bearing internship is a three-way partnership between the student, Pratt Institute and an employer. The responsibilities of each partner MUST be outlined in an Intern Agreement or Learning Contract completed at the beginning of the internship experience;
- There are reflection and evaluation components which are completed by all parties through PrattPro.
