Academic Internship Through Your Department

It may be possible for you to register your internship through your department. Some departments have internship courses that can be used by their majors in certain circumstances.

  • Students wishing to pursue this option should contact their academic advisor or the departmental internship coordinator to find out whether their major department offers an internship course, whether they would be eligible to use the course, and whether their internship would qualify for academic credit. 
  • Tuition is charged for credit earned and students must be majoring in the department offering the course. 
  • In addition, the intern is usually required to find a departmental faculty member or departmental internship coordinator to supervise the internship and may be required to complete additional work such as maintaining a journal, writing one or more papers, or preparing and presenting a program on the internship experience.
