Although there is widespread agreement among public administration and related field faculties that internship can contribute towards relating classroom learning to real-life practice, Taiwan did not witness its first internship program until 1999. Despite a slow start, the growing number of internship programs could be a positive sign for public administration education. Unfortunately, there is no systematic research describing and assessing the achievements of internship programs in Taiwan. The author is therefore aiming to identify: what internship programs look like in general; what typical problems departments have to deal with in regards to internship; what observations supervisors of host agencies made of interns during their internship; how interns reflect what they have experienced. This study is based on analysis of 6 student internship journals of Shih Hsin University (SHU), as well as in-depth personal interviews with 2 agency supervisors, and 3 program coordinators and 1 intern from other universities.
