How many hours of work do I need to put in at my internship?
A 3 credit hour internship requires that you work at least 180 hours.
I have a great internship lined up, but I don’t think I can get 180 hours of work.
You may register for less than 3 credit hours at any internship site provided you plan to do another internship for the remaining credit hours/work hours, e.g., 1st internship site with 2 credit hours/120 work hours, 2nd internship site with 1 credit hour/remaining 60 hours work. (This will require separate contracts for each site).
Can I do an internship in my minor?
No, your first 3 credit hours of the internship MUST be within your major.
Can I start my internship hours early?
No. All of your internship hours logged must be completed within the semester in which you are registered for the course.
Can I do an internship for more than a semester?
Yes. You will, however, need to fill out a separate contract for each semester.
Can I receive credit for an internship after I have completed the internship?
No. Students wishing to receive credit for an internship must register for the internship the semester before they do the internship.
Where can I find an internship?
Can I use my current job as my internship site?
This may be possible, provided your job duties line up with your objectives and are related to your field of study. Each internship site must be individually approved by your faculty internship advisor, Professor Bruce Kirk.
Can I get paid at my internship?
YES! In fact, we hope you do.
