"...I took [the] public history course last spring semester. I graduated in July...[and at] the end of August, I was offered a well-paying job at a law firm in...a suburb of Chicago. Although I have no previous law experience, the firm felt that my history degree prepared me for this job...[The] public history course was difficult, but it also gave me a great deal of confidence in my abilities."
One of the most common experiential education options at Ball State is the internship. Internships result in academic credit, are professionally supervised, relate classroom learning and actual work, typically involve one-time work experiences, occasionally provide financial compensation, and are approved, coordinated, and evaluated by students’ academic departments.
