Capstone Internship

All second-year CIVICUS students participate in a Capstone Internship for academic credit. For most students, the CIVICUS Capstone Internship sets the foundation for future professional opportunities. In addition to completing the internship experience, students take BSCV 302, a three-credit course in which students reflect on what they are learning in the professional environment.
