Field Experience/Internships

Faculty urge all students who have not had significant experience in an information setting to apply for 3 credits of supervised professional field experience (17:610:592). Students complete this work in a wide variety of public, academic, and special library and information service agencies. Students must have completed at least 15 credits in the master of information (M.I.) program before they are eligible for field experience. Consultation with the field experience coordinator is necessary well in advance, early in the semester prior to the intended coursework, in order to make necessary arrangements.

Field experience is mandatory for school library students. International students seeking to do a field experience must consult the program director and the Rutgers Global Student Services office prior to enrolling in the field experience course.
