Undergraduate Internships in Human Resources and Labor Relations

Learning Goals and Outcomes

HRLR 493 will satisfy the Experiential Learning Requirement. You can read more about the College Experiential Requirement here: https://socialscience.msu.edu/undergraduate/current-students/curriculum.html.

In addition to satisfying the College's Experiential Requirement, this course also double counts as a General HRLR elective - see section "d" - https://reg.msu.edu/AcademicPrograms/ProgramDetail.aspx?Program=HRLR_BA1

Work with HRLR Advisor Matt Hahnenberg (hahnenb2@msu.edu) on how best this course can help satisfy your degree requirements.


How to Apply

REMEMBER - You MUST have an internship already to apply for credit.

***Haven't secured an internship yet? See resources below.***
  1. Meet/speak with your advisor, Matt Hahnenberg, to ensure that the credits will count towards your degree requirements. Confirm with your supervisor that they support you completing the internship course (this must be completed prior to submitting the application below).

  2. Fill out the following application (HRLR 493 – Internship in Human Resources and Labor Relations): HRLR 493 Application (login using your MSU student email).

  3. After submitting your application, the Supervisor Training Agreement link will be forwarded to your supervisor within a week (let your supervisor know that they can expect it). If they do not receive the form, encourage them to check their junk mail folder.

  4. Follow up to ensure your supervisor completes the form.

  5. Once both forms (application and supervisor training agreement) are received, HRLR will enroll you in HRLR 493. You do NOT enroll yourself in the course.
