Details of Courses

COURSE TITLE: Internship in Paleontology or Sedimentology
LECTURERS: Prof. W. Joyce, Prof. A. Foubert
ECTS Credits:3
FREQUENCY:anually in fall and spring semester
CONTENTS:This course provides students with the opportunity to collect practical experiences in the form of internships that can take place across a broad spectrum of environments, including, but not limited to the hydrocarbon industry, natural history museums, field expeditions, or government institutions. Students are allowed to organize internships at their own discretion, but must receive formal approval in all cases in advance (i.e., prior to commencing the internship) from one of the course organizers. Proposals will be judged in regards to educational merit, time investment, its relevance to ELE, and its demonstrable independence from the student's masters thesis. The typical internship will last at least two weeks. To receive credit students will need to provide a formal confirmation of attendance from the institution granting the internship and a short written report to be approved by the supervising course organizer. All students must comply with the labor laws of the county at which the internship is being carried out. ST. 0541 Learning outcome: Collect practical experiences relevant to ELE in real work environments.
