A valuable work experience can provide students with insight to their chosen field of study and will serve to enhance and illustrate principles learned in the classroom. UCLA Extension therefore organizes fieldwork experiences as credit or non-credit-bearing courses in order to record students’ engagement in practical workplace Internships. UCLA Extension enrolls nearly 600 students per year in classes organized as Internships. This policy defines conditions that will promote the academic value of internships and stipulates roles and responsibilities to limit exposure to unnecessary risk in an activity subject to close scrutiny.
