INTERNSHIP HANDBOOK

2011-2012

 

LAST UPDATED: 5/10/2011 11:30AM

Check this site often for updates on internships

 

Internships (practica) provide students in the Program in Higher and Postsecondary Education (HPSE) at Teachers College, Columbia University with professionally supervised, consistent and comprehensive exposure to the roles and functions of a wide variety of administrative offices in higher education.

 

Practica are not required by any of the sequences in the HPSE Program, however, if you choose to participate in an internship, your course of study will include one required fieldwork course. Incoming, full-time MA students are given priority in the internship process, however, all incoming students regardless of degree program may participate. While internships are not required for the completion of your program, once you accept an offer to intern for the year, you are obligated and expected to complete your internship under the specifics of the contract you sign with your supervisor (occurs after offers are given). You must apply to at least 7 internships to participate in this program.

 

Internships provide students with:

·      Opportunities to relate theory to practice and practice to theory;

·      Depth to your academic program by providing an environment where classroom concepts can be explored in a practice setting;

·      Breadth to your administrative experience through work in a different campus setting than has previously been experienced;

·      Practical exposure to administrative and leadership issues, particularly as they relate to entry and mid-level positions;

·      Supervision and assessment directed toward identifying and strengthening your skills as a higher education administrator;

·      Assistance in clarifying goals within the field of higher education;

·      Additional financial resources while attending the program; and

·      A challenging learning environment where you can pursue specialized interests such as organizational culture, community relations, student development, academic policy, multicultural awareness, event planning, or program assessment.

 

CONCURRENT FIELDWORK SEMINAR

All students who are placed in a program-sponsored internship (regardless of academic focus) are required to attend a one-credit fieldwork course, in both the fall and spring semesters. This two-semester course builds and strengthens the link between theories regarding higher education administration and actual work experience at the internship site. The course allows students an opportunity to discuss specific aspects and issues of their internship experience and to gain support, insights, and ideas from peers. Please note: if you fail to enroll for the concurrent seminar for both fall and spring semesters, you will not be eligible to apply for the internships in this booklet. You will register for this course after consultation with an HPSE advisor.

 

CONTACTING INTERNSHIP SITES

This handbook contains a wide variety of internship opportunities sponsored by the HPSE Program. You should decide which internships would best serve your interests and those that ask for skills and experiences you possess. At the same time, keep in mind that the internship should provide you with a learning experience, so there is value to selecting an internship in an area which you have not previously worked as a way to broaden your skills and experiences. 

YOU SHOULD INDICATE IN YOUR COVER LETTER THAT YOU WILL BE ATTENDING THE TEACHERS COLLEGE HIGHER & POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION INTERNSHIP FAIR.

 

THE SPRING 2011 INTERNSHIP INTERVIEW PROGRAM

 

 NOTE: ONLY STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN FULLY ADMITTED INTO THE TEACHERS COLLEGE HIGHER & POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION PROGRAM ARE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE INTERNSHIP FAIR.  SUCH STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE INFORMATION ON HOW TO REGISTER FOR THE FAIR FROM THE INTERNSHIP COORDINATOR VIA E-MAIL.

 

You should plan to attend this event and schedule interviews with supervisors from 11am-5pm AT 20-MINUTE INTERVALS (e.g. 11am, 11:20, 11:40, etc.). If you will not be able to attend this event, you will need to make alternate interviewing plans with supervisors, either via phone or in person. To schedule interviews at alternate times, simply make those requests directly to supervisors in your cover letter.

 

With few exceptions, supervisors will be interviewing at the Internship Fair and will not make their final decisions on candidates prior to that date. It is advised that students wait until after that date before accepting any job offer, so that they have a chance to consider all possible sites. After the Internship Program is completed, both supervisors and students will rank their choices of candidates/sites. Rebecca Natow, Internship Coordinator, will work with supervisors to make final placement decisions as quickly as possible. Supervisors will then contact students directly with a job offer. Some sites may not be able to make final offers until budgets have been approved later in the year; those circumstances are identified in the job postings below. Such sites will likely make preliminary offers to students based on funding; however, those offers IN NO WAY guarantee a final offer for a position.

In making your decision, you should also look for internship opportunities that will allow you to obtain new skills as well as build on old ones.

Conduct yourself in a professional manner: You should approach the internship interview as you would any job interview.  Prepare for possible questions, update your resume, dress appropriately, and arrive on time.  Remember that all internships are professional positions requiring your dedication and commitment.  Suggested reading: the book “Brag” by Peggy Klaus.
