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?

Check out the Career Center's full guide to getting an internship, or email CAS Internship Coordinator Sophia Trigg or Richard Watts.
