The Career Center works cooperatively with academic departments to identify
professional internships. Academic credit can be granted (with department
approval) for participation in a six-week Wintersession internship program.
Students often find that the professional experience and knowledge gained are
invaluable in career choices and directions. Anyone interested in Wintersession
internship opportunities should contact his or her department directly.
Information on summer internships is also available through the Career Center;
several internship seminars are also offered.
Three-credit internships are permitted in fall, spring, Wintersession, and
summer. In a few departments such as Apparel Design that were grandfathered in
under the former policy (pre-2008), an internship may be taken during
Wintersession for six credits.
Undergraduates are eligible to
take a fall, spring or Wintersession internship once they have successfully
completed their freshman year and may take their first summer internship after
their sophomore year. Undergraduates may take a maximum of six credits toward
Graduate students may take a
maximum of 3 internship credits toward their graduate degree, except where exceeded
by departmental requirements.
Registration for an internship requires special forms and approvals. The
forms are available in the Registrar’s Office or by clicking on Internship
Form with Instructions. Internships taken over the Summer for 3 credits
will be included in the cumulative credit count for the upcoming year. Read the
section on Tuition and extra credit charges for more information.
