Summer 2021 Internships:

Whether you're in your hometown or in Burlington, we are here to help! Summer internships can be remote, in person, or a bit of both. If you find an unpaid internship, make sure to also apply for summer internship funding and look into getting credit through our internship course AS-190. Looking for an organized internship program? Check out our cohort-style internships called Communities of Practice! Take a look at the information below for more details.

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.
