No main field.
The course can normally be included in a general degree at the bachelor's level.
In this course the student acquires experience-based knowledge within their subject area and applies the previously acquired knowledge and skills during their education within a professional setting. Therefore, the internship should be at a workplace where the subject competences are part of the core business, and the work assignments given to the student should be relevant to their future professional life.
The course also develops the student's ability to reflect upon their professional development, and their ability to communicate experience-based knowledge with different groups.
On completion of the course, the student can:
- present in-depth knowledge and understanding of practical professional work on issues related to the main subject, and present knowledge and understanding of how parts of the labour market / industry are structured;
- identify and describe their knowledge and skills in relation to potential clients and partners in the student’s main field;
- communicate orally, visually and in written text--using skills achieved during their previous studies--their experiences during the internship in dialogue with different groups;
- demonstrate the ability to independently select, investigate and account for a relevant topic or question which has been in focus during the internship period, and present different issues within the student’s main subject area that may be important for professional working life;
- evaluate and reflect in writing on their own professional practice and development in relation to an analysis of their intended field of work, and demonstrate the ability to independently identify their need for further knowledge within relevant subject areas.
The main learning activity is experience-based self-studies at an internship, under supervision by the professional staff at the workplace, and academic staff at Malmö University. The course is supported by tutorials and web-seminars.
During the internships time should be set aside for documentation of workplace and work assignments. The student, in consultation with their workplace and supervisors, prepares an appropriate form of communication for communicating the experiences of the internship for a conference audience.
The course also includes 5 weeks (200 hours) of independent work on reflecting in writing on the internship, where the student uses the documentation gathered during the intership to reflect on their experiences, competences and needs for further development.
The student is responsible for arranging their own internship. The internship must take place during the semester. The internship can be located at an international, national or local organization (state or municipal agency, association, or company) as long as the workplace is related to the student’s main subject area.
