By Guy Harrison, Media & Marketing Specialist

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. - Although the start of the spring semester is right around the corner, there is still time to register for classes at Central Arizona College and to take advantage of two for-credit business internship opportunities offered through the college.

The CAC Office of Experiential Learning is offering students 45-hour off-campus internship opportunities through two options:

BUS 196 (Spring) or BUS 198A3 (Fall) (Applied Business Internship) - Worth one college credit, this opportunity is designed for students who have successfully completed at least 15 college credits toward a certificate or degree. This job readiness and internship course helps students develop professional job skills and apply those skills to a 45-hour internship. Students taking this course will be provided assistance in locating an internship site. Due to its open entry, closed exit format, students may register for this class at any time during the semester.

BUS 260 (Applied Business Seminar) - Worth three college credits, this business capstone class includes a 45-hour internship or community service learning project experience for students completing degree requirements. During the class, students develop career goals, professional job skills and collaborate as a team to research problems and critique actual local and global business community situations. The site of the 45-hour internship can be arranged by online students to complement coursework while face-to-face and ITV (Interactive Television) students complete an in-class community service learning project. This course is open to students who have successfully completed CIS 110 or CIS 120 and a minimum of 30 college credits.

For questions regarding these two internship opportunities, please contact CAC's Experiential Learning Coordinator Tabatha Smith by email at or by phone at 520-494-5987.

CAC's spring semester begins Tuesday, January 21.
