Field Experience Program

The SILS Field Experience Program enables students to gain 135 hours of professional experience in an information organization while receiving three hours of class credit. Field Experience can be taken during the fall, spring, or summer term. Organizations interested in hosting SILS field experience interns and looking for interested students should fill out the New Site Form.

Students are mentored by both a supervising professional in the organization (site supervisor) and a full-time SILS faculty member (faculty supervisor) and engage in a course seminar.

SILS graduate and undergraduate students are eligible for this program. The Field Experience Program is intended for SILS students who have completed their junior year (undergraduates) or at least 18 credit hours toward their MSLS or MSIS (graduate students).
