Special Projects (Applies to students looking for Academic Credits for the Internship.)
We have special projects that focus on various aspects of West Coast Swing that we hope to learn and research more about. Each intern will be given a special project(s) to focus on that may require data collection, experiential/action research, academic research and perhaps more. We have in house resources for support on these projects, however, the ability to work independently and creat a final project is imperative.
