College of 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. 

Please note that internships for credit must be with companies or organizations that are able to sign our UVM Internship MOU (i.e. legal entities or sole proprietorships with proper insurance coverage). If you have questions about whether your internship will be eligible for credit through UVM, please read the full CAS Internships Policy or reach out to to talk with our Internship Team!
