PLSC389: Internship

PLSC 389 is offered in the Fall semester and taught by Dr. Mark Caroll. Landscape Architecture students enroll in LARC 389.

Students: You must make sure to get approval of your internship through Dr. Mark Carroll. We want to make sure you get the best experience out of your internship.

Steps

1. Email Dr. Mark Carroll (mcarroll@umd.edu) with a brief (ie., 1 to 2 paragraph) description of your proposed internship. The description should focus on your expected internship responsibilities and what you expect to get out of your internship experience.

2. Before starting your internship, have your supervisor complete and send directly to Dr. Carroll the Internship offer form (i.e. first two pages of the linked document).

3. Once your internship is approved by Dr Carroll you will receive a document outlining the requirements for the Internship Journal. Journal entries should made while you are doing your internship.

  • Dr. Mark Carroll will email Diana Cortez (dcortez@umd.edu) once he has approved your request. You must email Diana your UID# so she may lift the block.
