Internship Program

The Internship Program at Notre Dame College will:
  • Provide real world experience in your field of study
  • Give you a competitive edge over other college graduates
  • Assist in providing networking opportunities in the professional world
  • Help you narrow down the areas to pursue in your field

Progress Updates

In order to document the hours worked as well as your progress with your internship, you will complete an Internship Progress Update every two weeks through Moodle during your experience.  You are no longer required to complete and submit journals during your internship experience. However, you are encouraged to keep a basic log of your activities to assist you when writing your final reflection paper.

Progress Log Template

You may want to keep a brief log during your internship experience to assist you in writing your final reflection paper.  Remembering what you did, the training or orientation process or the projects that you developed in the early stages of your internship may be difficult.  Please use the following template to outline your bi-weekly experiences.  You may want to note the following:

  • what you’re learning and experiencing (observations, accomplishments)
  • how it relates to what you’ve learned in the classroom at NDC
  • how it relates to your learning goals
  • other areas you might like to investigate further
  • any challenges faced or mistakes made and how you corrected them
  • personal thoughts and conclusions about your experience
  • Progress Update and Progress Log Template
