At the beginning of the Second Semester of Year 3, students on the program will be invited to identify their topic of Research Project for preparation and submission of a Dissertation within one week of end of the final examination week at the end of Year 4. At this time, student’s proposed supervisor will be identified. The supervisor will guide the student via one-on-one or small group tutorial programs focusing on critical theories and related matters in order to equip students with the conceptual and critical tools that will enable them to work on the research project. Towards the end of the Second Semester of Year 3, arrangements will be made for organizing dissertation workshops in which the students will present their proposed topic, research question, critical approach, and primary material.

G. Internship (3 credits)

This is a mandatory requirement for graduation at the University. Participation in this program should be planned well in advance so that this requirement can be completed by the student at any time before graduation. Usually the students take part in this program during vacation periods in the third and/or fourth year of study. The minimum duration of internship is 12 weeks under supervision of an appropriate qualified person. The internship work may be extended up to six months with permission of the designated faculty member.

The internship is a form of learning that integrates a student’s academic experience with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships allow ZUMS students to gain valuable applied experience and make professional connections, while also giving employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.
