Geography Students' Assessment of Internship Experience at a Kenyan University
Simiyu, Robert Romborah; Okaka, Fredrick Okoth; Omondi, Paul
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v39 n3 p343-355 2015
This paper reports findings of Moi University's geography students' assessment of their internship, which underscore the importance of internship in bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and its application in the real world of work. Not only were the majority of the students able to apply geographical knowledge and skills in their work situations, they also acquired new competences, gained work experience and were able to map their career paths and make contacts with relevant professionals and potential employers. As a result, most students came out of internship more upbeat about the geography programme and their career and job prospects.
