Internships

Three-credit internships are permitted in fall, spring, Wintersession, and summer. Graduate students may take a maximum of 3 internship credits toward their graduate degree, except where exeeded by departmental requirements. Registration for an internship requires special forms and approvals. The forms are available in the Registrar’s Office or by clicking on Internship Form with Instructions. Internships taken over the Summer for 3 credits will be included in the cumulative credit count for the upcoming year.

The Career Services Office works cooperatively with academic departments to identify professional internships. Academic credit can be granted (with department approval) for participation in a six-week Wintersession internship program. Students often find that the professional experience and knowledge gained are invaluable in career choices and directions. Anyone interested in Wintersession internship opportunities should contact his or her department directly. Information on summer internships is also available through the Career Services Office; several internship seminars are also offered.
