An internship isn’t “just a job.”
Academic internships help you apply concepts from the classroom to situations in the working world, refine professional skills and develop leadership abilities.
As an academic intern, you will work 10 hours per week during the fall or spring semester (about 140 total hours) and receive four hours of academic credit. Although academic internships are unpaid, employer guidelines are enforced to ensure that your internship will provide valuable academic and professional experience. Faculty approval is required for all credit-granting internships.
To qualify for an academic internship, you must:
- Be a junior or senior with a minimum 2.5 overall GPA
- Attend an orientation program (priority is given to students who attend)
- Submit an application, a Release of Liability Waiver, and one copy of your resume to Career Services
