How do internships differ from other coursework like Senior Seminar?

  • In an internship, you're the learner. You're directed | supervised | mentored by a professional in your field of interest.
  • In some client-based coursework, you're directed by the instructor for that course.
  • In Senior Seminar, you're functioning fairly independently - you're directing your efforts, not the "client" nor your faculty member.
