Experiential Learning is either an internship or co-op approved through Career Services consisting of on-the-job work experience where knowledge obtained from classroom theory is integrated with actual practical work experiences. The program allows students to obtain relevant work experience before graduating, while earning academic credit! NOTE: Students electing to do an UNPAID internship at a For-Profit Company MUST be enrolled in EXP 101 or 102. It is illegal for a student to do an unpaid internship without receiving college credits from an institution.
Internships provide students with knowledge of career opportunities, help students gain an understanding of the industry and how one might better prepare to be successful in obtaining and keeping employment in a profession. Internships also help solidify whether a student is making the correct career choices.
Contact Career Services to learn if you are eligible for Experiential Learning, if you need assistance with finding an internship or to learn if your current job would qualify. Start early to gain valuable and relevant work experience before you graduate.
The Experiential Learning program at Burlington County College has a ''rolling registration'' which allows a 15-week semester to begin at any time that a student is selected for the internship.
