Abstract

This study examined the following central research question: What experiences enhance the psychosocial development (as defined by Chickering & Reisser [1993]) and professional development of students that participate in work-integrated learning programs? Specifically, this study also explored the following sub-questions: (a) how does participation in work-integrated learning support the development of personal and/or professional identity, and (b) how do undergraduate students perceive their growth and preparation for careers as a result of their work-integrated learning experiences?
