MARA 294 Student Handbook

The internship course (MARA 294) is a field-based, supervised, professional learning experience that takes place in an archival records repository, records center, or other information organization. An internship allows the student to obtain work experience while pursuing defined learning outcomes. It is designed to provide the student an opportunity to test theories and to apply skills learned in other courses taken during the MARA program.

  • Internships can be paid or unpaid.
  • Internships require a minimum of 135 hours (3 units) completed by the end of the semester.
