Program Structure

CEA’s virtual internship only programs include a personalized internship placement and a flipped classroom-style online academic course. Your internship work schedule may vary depending on industry standards for your career field and will be determined after you arrive.

Multicultural Workplace Internship Course
The required multicultural workplace course has been designed to help you make the most of your internship and launch your transition to professional with the refined and strengthened career skills employers are craving.  The course features 8 hours of live, synchronous coaching sessions during your internship and includes additional self-directed course content, activities and assignments equivalent to about 30-40 hours total.  You will automatically be enrolled in the multicultural workplace course upon acceptance of your internship placement.

Credit Options
The 3 credit internship option includes the required online hybrid course and 120 hours in your internship placement. Together, the internship hours and course are worth 3 credits.

Career Coaching & Placement Process
Once you’ve submitted your application, your career development adventure will begin! The placement process is more than just securing an internship placement.  You will engage in a career exploration and coaching journey with your internship coach to help you to identify your ideal professional pathway.  During this time, you will receive 7-10 hours of professional career coaching via video, email and workshops. 

You will also engage in additional interviews with our in-country internship coordinator and your potential host site supervisor.  The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization.

Timeline Guarantee
Upon successfully completing your in-country internship coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement that will support the personal, professional, and cross-cultural learning objectives you have identified in your career coaching process. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to program launch. 

If you have confirmed an internship placement through independent contacts, we can also support you in securing important logistics such as visas, housing, and credit. Contact an admissions counselor for more details.
