CLA - Academic and Advising Services


CLA offers internships through many departments. Some CLA majors require an internship within the major and other majors offer the course as elective credits. The experience students receive complements their development, practice within their field of study, opportunities, and networking systems. Whether the internship is long or short term, incorporating the opportunity into their degree.

Students interested in an internship are advised to schedule an appointment with the Intern Coordinator within the department (see below) before the beginning of the next term. Late registrations may not be possible. The Intern Coordinator will assist students with answers and how to begin the process of finding an internship. Most internships for credit are not paid positions.

Students must review the course components before registering for an internship course. Some internship courses are reserved for majors only and may not be repeatable. Many internship courses are variable credits. This means when a student registers for the internship course they select the amount of credits. The amount of credits is discussed and agreed upon with the Intern Coordinator.
