Academic Credit Internships
Through the academic internship program, students are employed temporarily and are under the direct supervision of a faculty advisor. Registration for one, two, three, or six semester hours of credit is possible. A letter grade is assigned by the faculty advisor for this work experience. The internship must be approved by the internship committee and the student must be approved by the academic department in which the credit is being granted. Internships are only open to those students who are juniors or seniors. For questions regarding internships for academic credit, please contact Dr. Melissa Wiggins, firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the Academic Internship Website.
Not-for-Credit internships are also available for students who do not wish to obtain academic credit for their experience. Currently available Not-for-Credit Internships may be found on MC CareerLink.
How do you apply for an internship?
If you are interested in applying for an internship for academic credit, meet with the faculty supervisor of internships in your academic area to discuss your qualifications and review the list of internship sites that have been approved for academic credit. Go to the academic internship website for more details.
