A comparison of four domain area standards for internships and implications for utilization in undergraduate construction education internship programs Academic Article uri icon


  • This investigation analyzes and compares standards and guidelines for field-based experience internships in the undergraduate program domains of: business, political science, allied health professions, and teacher preparation with construction education. The standards from teacher education were found to be the only standards that specifically define and specify the development and structure of an internship program and its continued improvement. Analyses of the other domain standards, along with a literature review, are portrayed in a structured matrix. The key components shared by the domain areas are evident in this matrix and can be utilized as a guideline for the development or structuring of a construction education internship program.
