Exploration Term-Contract Learning


Birmingham-Southern encourages students to engage in pre-professional relationships with community organizations. As interns, students spend at least 120 hours working on site at the organization and receive academic credit.Internships sponsored by the College include pre-health internships, pre-law internships, and English internships

A faculty member in the appropriate discipline serves as sponsor for the internship and supplies an academic component to the experience consisting of required readings and writing. Each year students may choose from a number of Exploration Term internships sponsored by the College which include pre-health internships, pre-law internships, and English internships. Students may also organize their own experience by arranging an internship with a community organization. In a recent January, for example, a student doing an internship in biology spent the month working in Michigan with the Medical Examiner, assisting in autopsies.
