Experiential Learning Seminar - NODEP-UA 9980 - 2 points
Can be counted for SCA-UA Internship credit (government and non-profit placements only). Can also be counted for Politics major credit (internship with domestic policy focus only)
The seminar is designed to complement the internship fieldwork experience. In it we explore many different aspects of your internship site. The goal is to finish the semester with an in-depth understanding of the company or organization, including its approach, its policies, and the context in which it operates. We will also discuss more generally the state of the contemporary workplace and ourselves as workers. Finally, you will use the seminar to reflect critically and analytically on the internship experience and as a way to refine your own personal and professional goals.
