The Honors College is pleased to offer a special opportunity for those students intending to graduate in Spring 2013 or Summer 2013 as part of IDH 5975. The primary goal of the course is to assist students in the preparation of a completed prospectus, including a thesis director, by October 12, 2012. The course is open to all students in their first semester of thesis work (Fall 2012), with a particular emphasis on students who are not yet sure of the the direction of their work or how to develop a prospectus.
The course will have limited enrollment on a first-come, first-served basis. It will meet on Friday mornings for 1 1/2 hour sessions through October 19, 2012 and will be led by two senior professors experienced in mentoring Honors Thesis students. One hundred percent of students who moved through an experimental model of this program and were surveyed recommended the course as a "must."
If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact me at Silverman@honors.usf.edu

The USF Education Abroad Internship Program is a new initiative aimed at providing students with an opportunity to develop a variety of professional skill sets in the context of internationalization at the University of South Florida. Each internship will require between 8-10 hours of work per week and will take place at either the Education Abroad Main Office located in the Patel Center for Global Solutions or the Education Abroad Gateway Office located in the Marshall Student Center.
All internships are unpaid but can be taken for credit, provided your department approves of your placement and assigns a faculty member to oversee your work and grant academic credit (this step must be taken by the student on his/her own behalf &ndash The Education Abroad Office cannot work out the details of a for-credit internship for the student).
