This word document template is accessible using the link below.  The Syllabus section on the left-hand side of this page is left empty so that if you have an existing syllabus from a previous internship course, it is not overwritten.  If you are creating a syllabus from scratch, use the template link below and then you have a few options:

1. Personalize your syllabus using the word document and then copy and paste content from the doc into your Syllabus section (look to your left on this page!) using the edit button on the syllabus page and then clicking "save".  

2. Simply upload the syllabus file below after you personalize it, and link it on a page within the course. 

3. Both!
