ELI Internship/Practicum Options

As part of the Experiential Learning Initiative (ELI), Messiah College requires all students (starting with those who matriculate in the fall of 2015) to complete at least one ELI-approved experiential learning activity prior to graduation. The ELI provides students with a structured framework to engage their chosen experience in a way that leads to enhanced self-awareness, career preparation and community engagement opportunities. The ELI aims to teach and prepare students to articulate their “Messiah story” in a way that is meaningful to prospective employers and their communities.


All credit-bearing internships that are supervised through the centralized Internship Program in the Career & Professional Development Center will automatically fulfill a student’s ELI requirement.  Academic departments interested in offering practica as ELI must submit an ELI Practica Proposal Form
