The Graduate School offers two courses, GSAS 901c and GSAS 902c, to support summer training through practical internships. For the summer of 2019, students will register for these courses as part of the internship approval process and not through the typical online or paper registration processes.

Courses

GSAS 901c, Pre-candidacy Applied Research Experience          Richard Sleight
The purpose of this course is to provide students with the opportunity of gaining practical experience in research. This experience provides a basis for developing a dissertation prospectus that addresses significant research questions. Students work with a faculty mentor to select a suitable placement for the summer internship. As part of the application/registration, a one-page description of the student’s research plan is submitted to the DGS at least three weeks prior to starting the internship, for approval within two weeks. Upon completion of the internship, a written report of the work must be submitted to the DGS no later than October 1. Prerequisites: completion of one year of the Ph.D. program; and approval of the DGS. 1 credit; graded Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.
