Internships afford an opportunity for students to explore various career possibilities while still in college, enabling them to make better career choices. Internships may be completed in January Term, summer, and during the regular academic year.
Internships, which are available in most disciplines, must have a strong academic component in order to be approved for course credit. No more than two internships may be counted toward graduation. Other internships are designated as exploratory experiences and may be taken for either one or one-half course credit, but will not fulfill graduation requirements. Students who wish to pursue an internship should consult with their academic adviser and the Director of Career Development. Regulations governing internships for credit are stated in the Academic Regulations.
