An academic internship is a carefully monitored work or service experience that enables students to apply, build, and learn skills in their chosen music industry field. Academic internships require students to set intentional learning goals and actively reflect on what he or she is learning. The internship employer provides a candid assessment of the student's performance at the end of the internship. While most academic internships are unpaid positions, some organizations offer stipends, meals and other job-related perks.
All of our students are required to complete one 2-credit internship before graduation. Academic credit is earned during the semester in which the internship takes place by enrolling in REMU-UT 1037 Internship/Career Skills for the Music Entrepreneur.
Note: Academic credit cannot be granted retroactively for internships completed in previous semester.
