Purpose & Requirements

An internship provides an opportunity for students to utilize their academic classroom experience in a real-world setting. The goal is to help prepare students by emerging them into a career experience and facilitate their transition into the workplace.

Each internship is unique in accord with the student’s major and his/her educational and professional goals. The student plays an active role in creating learning objectives for the individualized experience.

Note: Students are not eligible to complete an internship for academic credit until they have earned at least 60 credit hours. Please check with your individual department to determine if your major has additional requirements related to internships for academic credit.

If you are seeking credit and do not yet have 60 credit hours, please refer to our Externship Course.
