Experiential learning through internships

The higher education internships (HIED 562 and HIED 563) are supervised field experiences of 120 hours in a setting consistent with the students’ professional and educational goals. Students assume administrative responsibilities at a college, university, or other higher education organization under the supervision of an accomplished professional in the field.

The internship experience is designed to enhance students’ professional capacities in higher education and to build professional capacity and marketability. For many students, this means completing an internship in an area where they see themselves potentially serving in higher education. For students already serving professionally or as graduate assistants, the internship is an opportunity to broaden their experience. For all students in Messiah College’s Master of Arts in higher education, an internship is about more than simply fulfilling requirements for graduation.
