Arts & Sciences Internship Policy: 

The College of Arts & Sciences follows the University Policy on Academic Internships with the following clarifications (as of April 2016): 

A maximum of 12 hours of internship credit may be counted toward the B.A. or B.S. degree. Individual departments determine whether internships count toward the major and minor. Students are expected to either enroll in an internship course or work independently with a faculty member to design a readings and research project that complements the internship activity. Internship work must be done during the same semester in which the student is enrolled for internship credit. 

Do you still have questions?

Intern Jamal Neal

Jamal Neal ('19, Neuroscience) interned at the UVM Interfaith Center during spring 2018. 

"I’m not entirely sure what I want to do yet but working in this internship has definitely helped start a path; it has provided me with a ton of insight for what I can do."

Intern Lilly Oates

Lilly Oates ('20, Political Science, English) interned during summer 2019 at the World Schools Debate Academy in Slovenia and was a recipient of the CAS Internship Scholarship. 

"This experience will allow me to network with and learn about teaching debate from some of the best and most experienced debate trainers in the world. Debate is very important to me and coaching students' debate has been a really fulfilling experience."

 

Over the last four years, internships in CAS have almost tripled, from 250 to 700 per year. Will you join that number?
