Computer Lab

The College of Business and Public Policy Computer Lab is located on the second floor of Rasmuson Hall in room 209. Computer labs 215 and 216 function as part of the open lab when classes are not being held in those rooms. The purpose of the open lab is to provide students who are taking a CBPP class access to hardware and software needed to complete homework for their class. A student must be currently registered in a CBPP class to use the lab.Registration in a CBPP class incurs a one-time mandatory lab fee.


An internship is a student work experience in which the employer or agency is the student's immediate supervisor, is active in planning the expected outcomes and is involved in the evaluation of the student's achievements. A faculty member must act as instructor and approve the work activities, the student learning outcomes and the evaluation method. The instructor reviews all of the final documents upon completion of the assignment and assigns the final grade. Internships require that the student completes a minimum of 45 hours of work with the employer for each credit earned. Final course grades are generally based on hours worked, outcomes achieved, employer and instructor ratings of work performance, and evaluation of required journal or reports.

Internships may be arranged either through the student's academic department or through the UAA Career Services Center.
