Internship Credit

What Type of Academic Credit you will get for an Internship?

Internship credits are upper-division, non-liberal arts electives. Up to 3 internship credits may be used as electives for the Media Management, Radio/TV Production and Communication major plans. Internship credits are graded as S/U; the Internship Seminar is given a letter grade and is an upper-division, liberal arts credit. A 6-9 credit internship is required for Journalism majors and a 3 credit internship for Journalism minors. According to college policy, you may apply a TOTAL of 15 credits of Internship, Fieldwork, and Independent Study toward graduation. You may take more, but they simply will not count toward graduation. The number of credits you can receive is determined by the number of hours a week you work. The seminar is NOT included in these totals. Also note, if you take two internships, you only have to register for the seminar the first time.
