Making the most of your MSIS internship 3:00pm to 4:15pm in the Levitt Room, Richardson Hall

The department of Information Studies is holding a colloquium on interning this Wednesday.  All students who plan to intern this spring or summer are encouraged to attend.

What are the requirements for an internship? What is the process?  How should I interact my with site mentor? We all have questions like these about our internship and  this is a fantastic opportunity to get answers from Dean Reynolds and Professor D’Andraia. You will also be given the opportunity to hear from other recent IST interns about their experiences.
