Academic Internship Course

Students receive academic credit for participating in a pre-approved internship not just for the work you do for your internship employer, but by engaging in reflection about this experience through completing assignments as part of the academic internship course. This course runs concurrently with other fall and spring semester courses. In addition, during the summer, students can enroll in a 9-week academic internship course.
