How do I get academic credit?

Internships may be used and the credit will be assigned to the appropriate department under which the internship is being administered. Students may initiate internship proposals, but all internships must meet the same minimum standards and be approved by the department chair and supervising professor prior to the beginning of the experience or within two weeks of the beginning of the experience.

If the student and the academic advisor believe that the internship experience is truly interdisciplinary, the student may submit multiple proposals, one to each department involved. The total hours earned will be divided among the departments, e.g., a student earning twelve hours of credit may propose that nine hours be earned in political science and three hours in sociology. Each proposal must be approved by the department involved. To be eligible for an internship, a student must have achieved junior standing (60 hours) prior to the beginning of the internship and must have at least a 2.50 cumulative GPA. A minimum of 40 work hours combined with readings and written projects or papers are required for each semester hour of credit.
