ARH 293 Internship in Architecture

Credits: (3)
This course is designed for students in their second year of architectural coursework, giving them an opportunity to obtain real-world experience in the design and construction industry. Internships and co-op job opportunities are available throughout the community; however, there is no guarantee of internship placement.  The ultimate responsibility for obtaining a placement rests with the student. Assistance is provided by department faculty and OCC’s internship office. Internships may be paid or unpaid. A learning contract containing specific educational objectives that relate to both the work experience and academic studies is developed between the student and a faculty internship coordinator. Course requirements include a minimum of 135 hours of work, maintenance of a work journal, and a final paper.  Prerequisite(s): matriculation in ARH program , department approval, minimum 2.5 GPA, and sophomore standing.
