Internships provide students with learning experiences tailored to their interests as well as opportunities to learn about careers and gain practical experience through the completion of applied internships.

CMAP internship students prepare short videos, create experiential learning journals, and/or provide samples of their work experience for presentation at the GGC CREATE Symposium, academic conferences or publication.
