Subject matter

The internship takes place in a public or private institution with which FCSH has established an agreement and ensures the performance of relevant professional tasks, involving the application of theoretical and practical skills acquired in the course curriculum. It is framed by a training plan, set by a superviser from the host institution, by a FCSH’s supervisor and by the student; the FCSH supervisor must validate the plan according to the objectives assigned to the non-teaching component of the course. The internship report includes the characterization of the host institution, the nature of the work, the specific tasks undertaken for the development of this work and the trainee contribution to those tasks, theoretical or methodological problems, comments on the options chosen and, in attachment, examples of documents and other materials made by the student during his/her internship. The graduate student must also prepare the public defense of the results.
