What is an Academic Internship? : 

What is an Academic Internship? An internship is one of Metropolitan State's creative learning strategies available to students. It is a structured, academic, credit-bearing, field experience in which a student acquires and applies knowledge and skills, while working in a responsible role within a community, business or government setting.
