The Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning (CETL) offers on-campus internship opportunities for Minot State University undergraduate students.   The internship program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to learn and work on campus in an area that is directly related to their majors or fields of study. 

Internship Positions Available: Internship opportunities are available in most areas of study. MSU faculty and students must work together to develop relevant learning opportunities that will directly give students a working experience that will enhance skills that students will utilize in occupations directly related to students’ fields of study. 

Eligibility: A candidate must be a Minot State University undergraduate student; or have graduated from college within 12 months of beginning the internship.

General Information: Interns are expected to work between 5 and 20 hours per week during an 8 to 12 week internship period. Internships are offered during the summer, fall, and spring semesters. Interns may receive academic credit if an agreement is made between the Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning office, the faculty member supervising the internship and the student participating in the internship.  A student receiving credit for an internship must first get the approval of the faculty member and determine if the internship will be paid or unpaid, while receiving credit for the internship.  All interns are subject to the applicable Minot State University employee rules and policies.

Requirements: Interns and supervisors must provide, at the time of application, a summary of how the internship will assist the student in developing skills that are directly related to the student’s field of study or an occupation realistic to the major of the student applying.  

Interns and supervisors must, upon completion of the internship, submit a final report outlining the work completed by the intern, how it was beneficial to the student and to Minot State University.  The report must also describe to what capacity the duties performed by the intern assisted in the development of skills that the student will utilize in future job opportunities and how these duties specifically related to the field of study or major of the intern.  

Application Procedures: Candidates must complete an application form and submit it with their cover letter, resume, signed internship agreement form, and recommendation form. Some internship positions require additional application items, such as a writing sample. All application items must be submitted as a complete package. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

Application Deadlines: Fall program: applications must be postmarked August 30; Spring program: applications must be postmarked by December 15; Summer program: applications must be postmarked by May 1.
