What should I consider when choosing between an internship and an Independent Study Project (ISP)?
The internship and ISP both offer experiential learning opportunities for students to deepen their understanding of the core program themes. You may want to consider an internship if you would like to gain insights into a potential career field (particularly the day-to-day environment), learn about organizational structure in a new cultural setting, learn how the theories of the program are practiced on the ground, be connected to a new social network, learn from and about the local work culture, and develop professional and cross-cultural communication skills. You may consider an internship if you prefer routine and/or want to experience the daily life of locals who commute and work every day. The internship includes a seminar with reflection, analysis, essays, and a final paper/presentation.
